Spring Greetings to all of our Friends,
We have had a busy full winter in Florida and are returning to our new farm in Vermont this coming week. It is time to head north as summer came early to Florida this year and we have experienced a week already of very humid 90 degree weather. E-mail may be suspended for a few days and Mark and I will be on Cell phones only. It was a good busy winter for us and Mark’s first not working at the mill. He had lots of work here in Florida helping our friends and clients when they realized how handy he is! Erika and I and the horses had a good training season with customers coming and going… lots of opportunities to take the horses to competitions . so many of our new Vermont friends kept in touch and we look forward to going home to be there in Vermont. It was a challenging winter for many of you and our thoughts have been with you. Please keep in touch and if you are headed for Vermont give us a call and stop by. Ida and Mark
