I have finally decided to take the time and sit down, and make our first farm/blog post! Thank you all for stopping by to check us out. If you haven't read our "About Us" section, please go do so before or after you have finished reading this.
If you have already read our little introduction, then you know that we have a small farm (If the name "Double C Farms" did not give that away 😉)
This is not really a business, but more of a love and a hobby. However, from time to time we do have goats for sale. My husband also trains horses on the side.
A couple of weeks ago, he received an inquiry about a lady needing help with two of her horses. She needed help gaining their respect and gaining her own confidence back, after being thrown off of the saddle a few months ago.
I went over to their house with him on his first day to meet the owners and their horses. He also started some ground work that day to get a good feel for the horses and what areas they lacked in. He mostly wanted to start building respect. I only was able to get pictures of him with the first horse because I had to leave before he got to the second horse.
He was beautiful and quite smart, he caught on fairly quickly but did have a stubborn side.
I must say, it never ceases to amaze me how he can get a horses attention and respect so quickly. He uses the Natural Horsemanship Method and does a lovely job. I am not just saying this because he is my husband. :)
What else is happening on the farm? Well, since we bought it at the end of last summer we have not had much time to do landscaping. We have a huge fenced in yard and we have some major work we need to do. We started spreading gravel, mulch, planting flowers and pulling weeds a couple of weekends ago when it was nice out. I foresee some more of that happening this coming weekend as well.
A couple of Saturdays ago, it was sunny and 75 here in North Carolina.
The dogs enjoyed the sun most of the day.
I believe the high for this Saturday is only going to be 48. But knowing North Carolina, that could easily change between now and then, Oh how we love Carolina weather... 😆
