Early flowers are starting to come up, and although we know there is more cold weather to come, we are starting to feel like Spring is just around the corner. Our stables are full and we continue to be busy with lots of activity. Winter maintenance projects have included things like replacing the lights in the covered arena to repairing all the 15 year old faucets that were constantly dripping.
Got the initial grading completed to put in a round pen and 3 more paddocks. These will really be helpful with so many horses to rotate through the turnout schedule. As soon as it dries out some we will start putting up the fences.
Good news just across the road from Applewood, Fenwick Farm has their new arrival on proud display. The little colt was born last week. Brad Thatcher
