Output Thoughts

My  niece, who is a veterinarian, lives in Harrington Delaware is currently settling into her recently acquired ten acre farm. Since she was a very young girl, she has had dreams of having her own horse farm. It is a dream that has come true. She is taking root and establishing her life at the early age of forty. This very busy woman is a partner in an equine clinic in Dover Delaware and has been with the practice since June, 1999.

It might interest you to know that the "farmette" consists of ten acres, three pastures, two run-in sheds, a two horse barn, and a horse trailer. To date the other residents are two horses, two cats, a dog and a significant other. At the end of a long driveway there is privacy and a lovely home. They all are "living the dream." 

I understand that the farm is being called Pipedream Farm. She probably never thought that it would come true. Well it did! Somehow this name seems "off" to me because I always thought that a pipe dream was an unrealistic hope... a fantasy...wishful thinking. When it does come true it is no longer a pipedream. Well, that is only my critical thinking, BUT my mind has conjured up so many other names for her farm that I'm compelled to at least make my list. (I'm always making lists!) This will not be shared with her, however.

Forefoot Farm

I'm impatiently waiting for photos of her dream farm to arrive.
