Okay, I haven't been on here in a long time. To make a long story short, hubby and I have decided to move back to Ohio from KY. It has been a long process. The farm we just bought has an indoor riding arena and 19 horse stalls. There are currently 2 boarders, but the main one is leaving soon. So, we want to get our sign put up to get some more boarders. To do this, we need a name. The place was previously called "Scouting for Paints". It will be a small, low key (cheap) kinda boarding place.
My husband wants "Dunmovin' Farms" because he says we are never moving again (but we don't have any dun horses), or "Broken Road Farms" because the driveway is in rough shape and the song fits our lives (yeah, he's mushy like that
Anyway, I like names with Menagerie or Hodgepodge in them, since we'll have a mixture of things going on (horses, dogs, cats, maybe a cow and some chickens, and a ridiculous amount of gardening), but my husband doesn't like anything I've come up with so far. This-n-that Farms, Hoof-n-Paw Farms - all received eye rolls from him.
So, some facts about the place: The land is very flat, it is just shy of 10 acres, there are apple, pear, and black walnut trees. The house is a little over 100 years old. We're both nurse practitioners and our horses are all unpapered and gaited. We're not too far from Yankee Lake and Mosquito Lake on State Route 305 in Fowler Township.
I love clever farm names like: Thistledew Farms or Belly Acres, but I haven't found anything that fits yet. The play on words of "Hoof Hearted Farms" is just a little too juvenile, even for me....
If we ever get to have kids, we'll fight over names the entire 9 months...
