Maryster farm puppies.

January 10th, 2009, Stonlea Shelby, my yellow Lab, had her 8 puppies this morning between 8 am and noon. They are by a lovely Male dog from Virginia whose name is Mack. Both parents have had their hips certified good and Shelby has had her eyes done as well. There are 4 boys and 4 girls and so far they are all doing well.. Hence there will be 8 lovely puppies for sale. I will post some pictures as soon as I get some downloaded.

Florida Trip

The Day after Christmas I headed to Florida with a large group of friends, as I was invited to go to the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park for 7 days of riding between Christmas and New Year's Weekend. Kathy Caudill went with me and we travelled down sort of with Roy and Linda Cornett of Georgetown, KY. It was rainy, foggy and nasty all the way to Live Oak, Florida. BUT---we had 7 gorgeous days of riding then came home in the rain and fog again. While there we not only rode on and around the Park on the Suwannee River and Florida Water Management, but also at the Goethe State Forest, The beach at Amelia Island near Jacksonville, and the RO Ranch, south of Live Oak. Billy and Kathy Morgan, their daughter Katie May and another cousin, Katie Jo, from Bowling Green, Ky Joined us and after 6 days of wonderful riding we then took a fabulous kayak trip down the Suwannee River and that was a real highlight.
All in all it was a great trip and it was hard to return to the "cold north"
