Last weekend was my first weekend away from the farm since we bought it. I had a fear of being tied down to the farm for the everlasting future if I did not escape regularly from the get-go. There is always going to be something to do, something to fix, something to build, something to mow. But I still want to live my life and enjoy my horse (the reason for which we bought a farm). So last weekend, I took my baby horse to a local cross country course to try his hand at jumping some solid fences. Suffice it to say that he was awesome. If this little fellow doesn't have a future in the hunter ring like I hoped, I think he might be able to cut it as an eventer! The wonderful Erica Zerbe (http://ericazerbe.com/) took the photos for me.
