A beautiful fall day ...

Chickens loving their Saturday!

Apples growing and getting so tasty! Next rainy day will be applesauce day!

Sampson swam and rolled and ran.

And played with Sally.

Brody trucked along at my heels as usual  - and enjoyed deadfall apples very much.

and so fall begins ...

as expected

with wooding , and hay collecting - got a small bale's worth of nice hay off the left overs from the big equipment ... the bunnies will be thrilled :)

walking (everybody except Thea - who is lame at the moment)

working on the garlic harvest - sorting what to use and what to plant ... trimming a little ..

Tomorrow's goals?

pulling all the potatoes, peppers, and squash

I fully expect a first frost this week ...

lovely wind up summer walk at Vareharri Farm yesterday ...

We had a lovely walk - started with tidying up the path to the pond field ... to think in the fall of 2008 you couldn't see this was a lane way!

 Sally loves running in the field

So does Sampson ...

Big T takes a little break ...

The barns are really starting to collapse entirely

both big and small ...

Two boys sharing a moment ...

Brody is happy just to be with us ...

on a walk or at the schoolhouse

our lovely weather vane - so fitting ...

Last ride...

Riker was wonderful - supple, engaged, smooth - what a good boy he is.

Gwen, the foal, was just adorable ...

What fun it was riding SEVEN times this summer ...unfit and strange to much fitter and smoother myself ... Nelly, Riker, and Katie - you made summer complete in a way I hadn't realized I'd been missing.
