The harvest moon precedes the annual Pumpkin Carving Party, and Ray is starting to grow his warm coat to prepare for the long winter.  Let’s hope it is milder than last year

Our new “pet’!

December 19th, 2010

In late 2010, Foxley Crescent Farm welcomed it’s newest addition, Tansy. In the short time that we have been taking care of her, we have learned that she is quite a character. While she is a bit hard to catch in the pasture, she is quite willing to work hard once you have her saddled up.  She is quite fond of carrots, and her favorite beverage is Papaya Juice (from Trader Joes). When she sees the juice bottle, she starts banging the bucket in her stall, demanding it’s immediate delivery! Tansy
