Saturday evening, Motor Man and I spent the night at the cottage on the Friesians of Majesty Farm in Townshend, Vermont. What a charming place! This is the living room.
And our bedroom.
We had no cell phone service, no internet service and we couldn’t figure out how to operate the tv. So we were both asleep by 8 pm. But we’d been up since 3 am and traveled eleven hours, so we were both a little tired.
Sunday morning, I awoke and looked out our bedroom window. And there were horses! I was like a kid on Christmas morning.
I rushed from window to window, taking pictures, some through frosted panes.
We soon left for the barn, because we had an appointment for a sleigh ride. On the way there, we passed by a little pasture where the foals were out playing. It was their first snowfall!
Later, Robert (Labrie, the owner/breeder) told us that Othello had been out earlier, running in the snow. You can imagine how disappointed we were to have missed THAT.
Here are Sjoeke and Diederik, about to be hitched to the sleigh for our ride.
I forgot to have someone take a photo of us in the sleigh, but we did take pictures of each other during the ride, all bundled up.
It was SOOO cold! Around 18 degrees. And windy.
But the scenery along the ride was beautiful.
We rode by ”our” cottage.
Back at the barn, after our ride, Motor Man was obviously ready to head inside for hot chocolate!
Or maybe just to pet one of the Friesians.
Tomorrow, another surprise and more beautiful Vermont winter scenery as we left the farm.
