Hello Rena,

I read a post on another thread indicating you were 35yo and healthy. Same age here. Have you yet managed to move west, or are you still hanging around here on the east coast? And where, exactly?

Cheers!

Farming is never easy. Horses are a lot of work if you care for them the right way. I am watching out corn crop wither away. The beans are not to far behind. Tough choices. Farming is easy if you have an other income stream. Then you can pay for help. Still, it is never easy if done the right way.

The rewards are not money.
