We are getting closer to owning the New Bedlam Farm and with it, Rocky, the blind 34-year-old Appaloosa who led us there. Closing is scheduled for Thursday or Friday. We won't move until we sell our current home, but we are very excited to own this wonderful place. Rocky will be inside the barn in a special enclosure, and this 1840 year old farmhouse, and the spirit of Florence Walrath will open up a whole new chapter for us.
I can't say I want to be owning two properties at once, but I know there is a buyer out there for this wonderful place and he or she will find it soon. This morning the Walrath family was clearing out the house and attic and they had a tag sale. I bought the photograph of Florence on one of her horses.
