Need Hay? We have lots of it!

The typical summer-time drought in the mid-Atlantic killed our lawn on June 1. The summertime climate has become one where June, July and August have blistering hot temperatures with very little rain. Our lawn is evidence of that- it's all browned and looks like hay (This photo was taken on July 11). We've lost quite a number of trees, shrubs and other plants, despite watering. It's just too hot. In fact, June almost tied the all-time heat record for the month, and the first 2 weeks of July are breaking records. So, if you're in our neighborhood, and riding through on a horse, come on by- we can feed him!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
