A couple of weeks ago, I told you guys how I rode Lily over to a friend's new farm to help her get set up. And I mentioned in my last post how I moved Lily and Gracie to a friend's new farm. Those new farms and the friends are the same place and the same person: my riding buddy and adventure sidekick Kathy! She bought her own horse farm! I told her that now she is literally living her farm dream! The two easy keeper mares with whom Lily and Gracie are living? Kathy's TWH Queenie and Zoe's Deja, the tiniest Arab.
Check out her post with before and after pics of the farm here.
And have some photos of the property and the horses, now that I can share them with you all :) Behold Copper Penny Farm! The horses were moved in last Saturday September 27th.
|Lily grazing in one of the paddocks the day I rode her over to the barn to help.|
|Run-in shed and the little 2-stall barn. There is a roof overhang on the backside of the barn that also serves as a sort of additional shelter for 1 horse.|
|Jumps!! The barn came with its own set of jumps!|
|Lily being a shameless hussy with the geldings next door. Funnily enough, there are 4 geldings: a Palomino, a gray and 2 bays. We have 4 mares: a sorrel ("red chocolate" per KY Mountain Horse colors), a chestnut and 2 bays. |
Isn't that funny?

Kathy's very first hay delivery would arrive a few days later!
|Stairs leading down from loft into barn below.|
|First hay delivery! 250 bales of orchard grass hay! (And 5 bales of alfalfa for Lily's lunches)|
|The mare herd: 3 easy keepers, 1 hard keeper. From left to right: Gracie, Lily, Deja and Queenie.|

There are 2 coops side by side out there. I told Kathy I'd love to set up the jumps in that field.
|"The park across the street" is now just "the park": we can ride directly into it from Kathy's farm!|
