Day 28

Another night on the farm, this time with chickens and horses

April 23rd, 2010

After getting turned down by a couple of people last night, I came upon High Water Farm, owned by Scott and Teresa. They welcomed me in and told me to make myself at home, and Teresa cooked me dinner (fresh eggs from their own chickens!) while I set up my tent (they said I could sleep inside, but the tent has started feeling like home; I did take them up on their offer of a shower), and also breakfast this morning before I headed out. They own nine horses on the farm, and board three more. Their daughters Stephanie (pictured) and Amy are talented competitive riders. Lacey the horse was also supposed to be in this photo, over on the left, but ducked out of the way as I snapped the shot.


  1. Mom says:

    Thank you for your kindness, Scott and Teresa.
