This was taken in 2008, a year in which we had an overabundance of rain. Look at all that growth!
From the same vantage point, here is how it looks today. Even though the above photo was taken in the summer and this one in the fall, there's still a big difference. We have one additional horse now, plus Chuck the steer, and this year we had a serious drought and record-breaking summer temperatures. We built the barn in 2009.
It's fun to look back and see how far we've come.
