Harley Farm, A Beautiful Place to Be
The baby goats are here! Too cute as always and very friendly. Ten of the little sweeties are bouncing around the barnyard, occassionally using wild and crazy Crabbet Arabians for vaulting practice. Crabbets are such good sports!
Dreaming of Spring . . .
Several wonderful horses have been sold recently, and we are always happy to hear from their new owners:
Keep your fingers crossed. I have someone looking at Marvel Wed. I really want to replace him with another one of yours! I love this pix of Bastian and I! I brought him to a Dressage clinic last summer J with a German instructor. He was loved.
I will keep you posted! Of course share the picture and our names! I am definitely good advertisement! Anyone can contact me that would like as well for reference and for me to share my enthusiasm!!
Ruby had her mani-pedi last Monday and the farrier was VERY impressed with her feet. She told me that Ruby's breeder "knows what she's doing" and was really glad that I was on board with the whole barefoot thing. She also said "This horse knows you." because she held Ruby for me for a second when I went to my car, and Ruby tried to follow me. Aw. I think I've gone from "that nice lady who brushes me and gives me snacks" to "You're my mommy!"
Here's a photo my uncle took of my little snorgle-horse. She is SO affectionate.
Harley Farm is a lovely 42-acre family farm tucked into the rolling hills of Middletown Valley. Located just west of Frederick, Maryland, we offer:
- Pasture-based horse boarding in spacious fields with good shelter. A visitor looking across our pastures called it "Horse Heaven." Amenities include a covered and lit training ring, Natural Horsemanship trainers/instructors, and miles of trail riding all around.
- Exceptionally gentle and versatile Crabbet Arabian* horses for sale. Several sweet and very well-trained horses are currently available.
- Rare and hardy Cashmere Goats and cashmere fiber for sale. Friendly multipurose animals, the goats do a great job of clearing weeds and brush while growing the softest fiber imaginable. the fiber is natural colored (cream and two shades of brown) and available in yarn and cloud form.
*Almost all of the horses at Harley Farm are purebred Arabians with 65% to 100% Crabbet bloodlines. Although our horses have many great ancestors, most are particularly influenced by two exceptional stallions named Azraff and Ferzon. To learn more about this unque line of horse, Google "Crabbet Arabian horses" or visit www.ecahs.org.
- Green Goat Organic Weed Control. Due to family time commitments, we are currently limiting our efforts to larger, local weed-whacking jobs.
