I am so excited to report that we have a new addition on the farm, as of Saturday evening, March 15.  It’s a galloping baby boy, who Annette named Peter Crossman.  The colt is adorable and seems to be doing all the things he’s supposed to…lots of sleeping, nursing and bouncing around on his very long, knobbly, wobbly legs.  Peter Crossman was due to be born on February 29, leap year day, but he just wasn’t ready yet, I guess.  Still he managed to be named after Vernon’s famous/infamous Leap Year Boy, the original Peter Crossman who works the Town’s Road Crew.  We hope Peter Crossman Jr can live up to the larger than life image of his namesake!  So far, it’s looking good.  Visit Vermont Woods Studios.

From one who came into this world as Peggy O’Neil, I send you Vermont Woods Studios‘ very best wishes for a Happy and Green St. Patrick’s Day.  Since you landed on this page, I have to believe you are wearing Green today or thinking Green…more importantly, acting Green.   And wouldn’t you love to sink into this lovely green satin fainting couch?  A perfect end to perhaps an overly indulgent St Patrick’s Day.  According to Steve Holman, the talented artisan who designed and built the piece, “It’s just the thing for reclining and sampling bonbons in the budoir.”  Or perhaps for samples of Irish creme as well.

There are lots of advantages to having an office adjacent to the barn on a working horse farm in Vermont, but I think this has to be the best of all:  we’re having a baby soon.  Hopefully this week.  Annette (mother of all horses) and owner of the farm, is going to deliver the foal herself, as she has so many times over the years.  Like Butterfly McQueen’s Prissy in GWTW, I’m eager to help, but entirely ignorant about this sort of thing.  Did you know that once the mare’s water breaks, you have only 15 minutes to get the baby out?  I’m hoping Kari chooses the daytime for ther BIG event, but Annette has cameras and sound monitors installed in the birthing stall for 24-7 surveillance.   Anyway, if you’re on the phone with us and hear neighing in the background, you’ll know the time is getting near.  I’ll post photos of the baby…we’re hoping for a girl!
