Happy Easter, Everyone

Peace at Follywoods

Not much on the horsey front here. I poo picked the arena yesterday and took a nice walk. It was a bit breezy--well windy, kind of.

I walked through the woods where my grandmother's field used to end. There is actually a fairly clear passageway there. What was once a cultivated farm field is now totally forested, but along the "back" there seems to be a bit of an open area. I think, with a little work, I can clear a nice trail.  If so, it will be a good place to ride where the ATV's and such will not be likely to bother me. It might only be a ten minute trail ride, but when I want to get out of the arena, it would be a nice option.

Most of the passage is pretty obvious, but there is one place where some huge trees have fallen over so I need to clear a way around them.  I have a couple cans of florescent orange spray paint to mark the trees so I can find my way.  I don't think I'll have a chance to do it today, but it is a project for next week.

Meantime to one and all:


  1. Your new-to-be trail sounds like a nice alternative to dodging ATV's.

    Hope you also have the Hoppiest of Easter's. Great picture.

  2. I hope your ATVs DON'T find your trail. leave a tree or two down that they can't get around but that you can hop over! they seem to always find ours.
