I started my birthday with coffee at the computer followed by breakfast in bed, compliments of Herb. After he fed the animals, we headed off on my birthday adventure, a trip to Philadelphia, TN to visit Freedom Farm Dexters. We had a warm welcome from Warren and Sally Coad and spent a couple of hours talking Dexters. I was especially eager to visit their farm because at the National show we went to on June 25, the majority of prize-winning animals were bred by Freedom Farm! Here's their website:
If you click on "Dexters for Sale" you'll see Sugar, the adorable heifer I fell for.
After that, we went on to visit Roland Vaughan in Cleveland, TN. Unfortunately he doesn't have a website I can share, but we had another informative visit.
We got home in time for a brief rest and feeding animals before we headed to Chattanooga for dinner at my favorite restaurant, St. John's. Delicious, as usual!
Then after we got home, I opened my presents. Here I am modeling them:
So I had a fun birthday, a mixture of city-girl and country-girl with the emphasis on country--just the way I like it!
