Part II Trip to NJ

As promised here are more pictures of our trip to NJ.


This is a cornfield in Warren County, NJ that was just cut for silage.


This is my friend, Kims barn and riding ring. She and her husband have worked really hard to get this farm in shape. This was never a farm, they had the barn built and the ring was done by her husband, Brian who is an excavator.


This is what Kim's barn looks like from the inside. She has 10 stalls, a tack room, feed room and an office/lounge. I'm really proud of her!


This is Kim's 2 wonderful horses, Casey and Julian. Julian was brought to this country when he was a foal-he is originally from England!


John and Montana got along really well.


This cute doggie, is Toby. His knick name is Toby Toes. He is so cute!


This is the beautiful view across the street from Kim's Farm. I love the New England Saltbox house across the street.


This is one of Kim's boarders. She really is a sweet mare.


Montana and Jet out in the field. Jet is a horse Kim rescued from the racetrack. She retrained him and now she has him for sale.


Casey and Julian again.


Kim loves chickens and this is her black and white hen. She was really very pretty!


Here is Kim's rooster. I can't remember his name but he is very loud!

So that is it for tonight. The NJ saga will continue tomorrow night!

I'm enjoying your pictures of New Jersey. I was born there, have lived most of my life in Colorado, but have lots of relatives back east. I think that once in your blood, it's always a part of you:) NJ is a beautiful state.

Do you know what kind of rooster that is? Did a google search on black roosters to identify my stray rooster (volunteered his presence here) and your pic was the only one that looks like him: green/black tail, brown wing tips, otherwise all black.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
