The Real Thing

the hay barn

the sheep

sheep and draft horses in the back

Today i had the great privilege to visit a friend's farm.  This is the real deal. They keep a herd of sheep, and a herd of beef cattle. Additionally, they keep draft horses, produce maple syrup,  and hay the surrounding fields.   I am tempted to feel impatient, to get all these components in place right away, on our own place. It wont happen. It will be years. But at the same time, this was encouraging and exciting to see.  And reminded me i am not so concerned with cosmetics.... but i am focused on getting functional elements built...
then, we had the great fun of going on a sleigh ride.  Very cold, but beautiful. 
These were our  power. 

This was a total delight.
