Getting Away

Getting Away
When we first moved from our suburban neighborhood to a rural property, one of our concerns was being able to take vacations and get away once we had farm animals. I mean, finding a pet sitter or a boarding facility for a beloved dog can be tricky enough, but with five horses, nine goats, 22 chickens, a llama, five cats AND a dog – you see the dilemma. Yet, it was important to us not be tied to the farm to the extent that we couldn’t get away for a ski weekend or take a family vacation each year. And I figured, I’m a creative problem solver; where there’s a will, there’s a way! One of the first things you figure out when you live in the country is you’d better know and befriend your neighbors. On our street there are 10 properties of approximately the same 5 acre size.
