New Horse, Who Dis?

If you happen to follow my Instagram, you may have seen a new photo yesterday of a horse that looks an awful lot like Ellie, but it isn't Ellie!

It's her momma!
Yes, it is true.  I now am the proud owner of Kennebec Rejoice, Ellie's dam.  To make a long story short, as Miss Gardiner, who owns Kennebec Morgan Farm, is now approaching 98 years old (!!!!), the managers have been placing the broodmares and selling the younger stock.  At this point, there are only three stallions left: Ellie's sire, who at age 25 will live out his days at the farm, a ten-year-old named Triple S Midnight, and a five-year-old named Kennebec Commander.  (So if you know anyone who wants a LOVELY breeding stallion, I can put you in touch!)
Most of the broodmares had been spoken for years ago by former employees and others who already own a Kennebec.  I had made it known that I would take in a broodmare if one needed a soft place to land.  One of the current farmworkers bought Rejoice this past spri…

Day 14 - Your dream barn/farm

I love my little farm, but man, if the budget was unlimited, there are so many things I would add!  LOL!

I would want a ring like this:


Dragged daily, of course!  ;-)

Plus, gotta have a separate jump field.

And an indoor, of course!
This would be fine.

My tack room would have to be much larger.

A wash stall would be nice!


And while I currently only have two stalls, I don't think I would add any more LOL!  It is enough work right now to own two horses, never mind adding more!  So unless I also get to choose the dream job of not having a job (haha), then I think I would increase the storage space in my barn (for my carriages and totes full of blankets that are currently in my basement).  My husband could use his own "tack" room, as he has a bazillion yokes that are also currently in our basement.  While yokes are considerably cheaper than say, a saddle, the oxen outgrow them much faster than a horse, so he literally has 5" to 10" yokes.  You measure in between where the bows fit into the yoke, so as the pair grows larger, you need a larger yoke!

I'd love to finish every fence line with the white vinyl we already have started.  We just did the front section for now, because (you guessed it) budget.  While we are at it, might as well add acres and acres of more grazing land. 



And while we are in dreamland, how about I don't have to pay more in taxes for this dream farm and I have a groundskeeper haha!  ;-)

  1. Wow. What a place. My dream farm would be mine but with an indoor and more land to carve out trails and a field for galloping. :)
