Hello and thanks to you all! I'm an hour south of Buffalo, NY. I pretty much do everything in NYS since I'm about five minutes from the border. I feel I basically get the best of both worlds living like that!
For me, just about every exciting horse venue is from 1-6 hours away, so traveling isn't too bad! I'm talking Equine Affaire in OH (woot! woot! love that!) to Dressage at Devon near Philadelphia and then the nice small, local shows in between! Gotta feed my horsey addiction!
I actually don't take a lot of photos of my horses, I think it's because I typically don't have my phone with me while I'm outside--too many places for it to drop and be the end of it forever!
Yes, my chickens are my therapy. After a stressful day at work, I enjoy relaxing with them and hearing their chirps and clucks and watching their industry while they search for bugs/worms in the soil.
Thanks again for making me feel welcome!
