I can hardly believe I made it to 1,000 posts for any number of reasons, but when I published my last post I noticed that I had published 999 posts so far. And now with this post I have made it to 1,000.  Who would've thunk it?  I realize 1,000 posts is nothing for some people, but given that I make time for this around my "real" and very much  more than full time job I'm pleasantly surprised I made it to 1,000.

I think the thing that surprises me the most with this blog is that a few people actually read it!  At times Jason and I have some interesting things going on around the farm, other times not so much. I will admit I am also surprised that I have managed to maintain a blog for almost seven years. Has this blog really been around for almost seven years? How on earth did that happen and where did the time go?!

Without question the best part about this blog is some of the really neat people I have met because of it.  The internet really does make the world a smaller place, and it also gives you lots of people to visit when you are traveling!  Others I have not met in "real life" yet I have interacted with them so much it seems as if I have. 

Jason asked me if I had another 1,000 posts in me. I didn't have an answer for him. I'm going to give it my best shot and we'll see where the blogging journey takes us. Thank you for reading, for helping me manage to post 1,000 blog posts, and most of all for being part of our little corner of the world!

Congrats on hitting 1K. It's always a pleasure to stop by this blog. :D

I hope your farm and my farmette duties don't keep us from meeting irl forever. Val will need a closer to civilization retirement home one day, so that means a tour would be in order. And if you guys make it near the Outer Banks ever, I'd love to show you around the islands.

I first found you and Paradigm through your blog, and your blog was also the inspiration for my starting my own blog. I enjoy seeing the photos of the retirees and goings on around the farm.

Thank you for posting your world on a blog and for all you do to care for those very deserving horses. I get to enjoy through your blog what I cannot in person. Faithful follower from South Mississippi!

I check in with you every day!

Tell Jason I am getting gravel next Tueday. My gravel pile is gone! Who knew that horses (1 in my case) need gravel. In my case, its quarter minus for my Rocky Mountain's dry lot.

We have said Good Bye to our three original Antique Equines and are now down to only one. So many of your posts hit very close to home.
