Mmmmmmm I wish I wish I wish. I think the "towns" here are a bit too populated to safely take a horse and cart, though I would DEARLY love to be able to do some leisurely grocery shopping via horse. One of these days...

That was fun, Jenna. The country side looks similar to our area in Middle TN. Except in winter. I hope the general public never discovers how great it is.

Preserved to date: 50 lbs. relish and pickle, 50 lbs. frozen squash, 6 quarts green beans, 6 quarts frozen and more on the way.

Also wood shed completed and filled. New large rain container going at the end of the shed. Tomorrow: laundry using solar dryer and freezing blueberries. Tues: going to "work" so I can rest.

Hey Jenna, that was really fun to go along with you and Patty and Steele. Please tell me why his eyes were covered while you were parked. Thanks, Cary

That really looked like fun. Your area resembles parts hereabouts in Maine, too. We are so fortunate to be able to see such beautiful sights every day. Bet you can't wait to get your own pony cart up and running!

That's a mesh fly mask! he can see through it but the flies can't get into his eyes and bother him. He was also sprayed with fly spray and a product named SWAT was rubbed around his ears. FLies just bother horses like nuts around now.

What a beautiful day for a horse ride for ice cream. I don't know if you have told us yet, but how did Battenkill get it's name?

WOW that looks like so much fun. Now you have done it... I want, I want. Going to have to get a cart and train my next horse to drive.

There is no clear answer on how the Battenkill or Batten Kill was named. Some think it was originally named after a local - Bart's Kill (Kill means river) others have said that
Battenkill literally translated is “river of the Dutch.” as we had many Dutch settlers here.
