I plan to continue updating the blog with coverage of all EKF happenings . . . but for a freewheeling, interactive virtual experience of the farm, horsey life in general, and the community of horse-crazy people, click on our new facebook page.
Hope to see you there (and here) soon!

We also made horsey ornaments, prepared special New Year's treats for the critters, and built a campfire right in the riding ring to make smores. That's a fun way to warm up on a cold winter afternoon (and how many people can say they've roasted marshmallows in their riding ring?). Some campers are cantering now, and on bareback day, one rider even switched from Wizard to Chubbs without touching the ground in between!
The first few weeks of this year also saw three older students make their debuts in the hunt field. Two of these have already come out a second time, and the third -- with beautiful new tall black boots -- is checking the calendar for the next opportunity. And I am looking forward to the end of this cold, icy weather!
