I’m happy to say that Finian successfully traversed the country and arrived fresh, fit, and in good order.  He’s had a few easy days to settle in and meet the neighbors, and he wasted no time with either.  He’s quickly become the source of entertainment for everyone at the barn.  We’re staying at Kate Ditchy’s farm and, as I’d expected from knowing Kate, it is immaculate.

If it isn’t packed now, it won’t fit in the bags anyway.  I’m heading to the airport for a red-eye flight to Philadelphia.  Ringwood Magister left on a van several days ago.  We will meet up at Kate Ditchy’s farm in Pennsylvania and stay there until we move down to Elkton, Maryland, for the Fair Hill International CCI**.
