My charges have been off site for awhile now. Getting used to the change in tempo and scheduling of FOBYF will take awhile. As long as the horses are happy...

We continue to research our options regarding re-conditioning of the paddock/barn areas. With the amount of *distractions* and *setbacks* happening here at F.O.B.Y.F , channeling energies into something that has tangible, positive results...would be nice. To say the least.

Vague? Fuzzy ? Yes, i do that on purpose.

To the cheese cave , nocturnal flying creature male! It's certainly much cooler there.
