Weekend in Kentucky

Wow, it's been a whirlwind weekend! Lots of fun things in Kentucky. Here are just a few:
When was the last time someone pumped your gas???

In Harrodsburg we found that station. Ft. Harrod is the oldest settlement west of the Allegheny Mountains and recreated old fort there. This NEAT old tree is there although it is the unofficial champion tree.

And of course there is Keeneland.....today was the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup. We didn't stay for the entire slate of races, but managed to see 4 of the races. Won $2.80 (on a $2 bet) in Race 2 with a horse called Nina Fever. Jordan's dog is Nina, so that is why I placed that bet....highly technical betting!!

Then we spent the late afternoon at Ashford Stud Farm (American division of Coolmore Farms of Ireland) where Justyn is employed now. The farm is just gorgeous!!


And then back to look at the land we looked at yesterday.....what do you think?? Would this make a nice farm for Justyn and Jordan and in a bit of time Cheryl and Jim?? We really like this one!! This is from the high point looking back to the big line of trees. It's just a bit over 30 acres!

One never knows.......stay tuned!
