Hi! This post is by Becky, I’m one of the farm interns this year.
Last week we got to take a break from weeding vegetables here on the farm and took a trip to Sequim to visit John Erskine, Betsey’s horse mentor. He has been working with draft horses for a long time and has been training Betsey’s two young fillies. It was pouring down rain the day we were there but we had a great time cleaning harness, learning about horsedrawn farm equipment, trimming the horses’ feet, and finally, each getting a turn to drive a team of two horses!
When we were in Sequim we also visited the Dungeness Valley Creamery and got some delicious raw Jersey milk from this family-owned dairy.
Now we are back at Laughing Crow Farm, trying to figure out what we can get done in this rainy June weather!
