It’s time to go trail blazing. The weather has finally cooled off so it’s the perfect time to get into the woods. A majority of our trails are through mature, maritime forest on private property and are maintained by yours truly. We are cutting back low hanging branches and making new trails to connect existing trails that have been blocked since Hurricane Matthew. Most of our trails are only passable by four wheeler and horseback so when you ride with us you are seeing some of the most remote parts of Daufuskie that very few people ever get to see.
There’s almost no place I’d rather be than fox hunting with the Lowcountry Hunt. Today’s fixture is Airy Hall.
We attended the Lowcountry Fair with Historical Flair featuring Marsh Tacky demonstrations and races at Cotton Hall Plantation organized by the Santa Elena Foundation. The weather turned out to be gorgeous and it was a family fun day with food vendors, live music, historical reenactments, artisans, a petting zoo and more. Marsh Tacky riders turned out to participate in an obstacle course (obstacles provided by Palmetto Bluff) and the fair’s main event, races on the grass. Congrats to Miranda Rawson and her horse Firefly who won by a few lengths!
Whenever we have a little spare time after shopping at the Jasper Feed and Seed, we will swing by DP’s farm and say hi. Today we were greeted by a handful of yearlings who appeared to be saying, “pick me, pick me!” We wish we could have them all but we are maxed out right now until we get more space.
