I worked for rides at the farm in 1969-70, when I was 13-14 years old. I remember being dropped off at the top of the drive on frigid winter mornings, and going down to that beautiful old 18th century house (is it still there?), where Becky Thompson, ever kind to me, would let me in for a hot cup of coffee and a chat, before I headed down to the barn to get to work, feeding the horses and mucking stalls. I recall the boot jack outside the door, where boots came off before you came in. I recall the deep gravel road from the house down to the gate, the mud, the "perfume", and the welcome sounds of the horse barn. Wesley and Helga were in their late teens then, I think. Old Butch the weimaraner would go down to the yard with me, and dash into the rickety feed barrel shed to make sure the coast was clear before i went in - lots of scurrying around in there when he showed up! I remember Pony Club meets, and the old green-painted horse hauler truck catching on fire on the way back home from Dublin, when the brakes overheated on Christiansburg Mountain (no major damage, thank God), and "Lucky Buck" the buckskin, and a crazy big mule-appaloosa mix with long ears and a spotted rump ("Hilarious"?) that could jump over a house from a dead stop, and lots of hard work, fun times and good people, in a beautiful setting. I remember a strong and stout old black mare who took off at a gallop on the way out to pasture with me on top and only a halter and lead rope - can't believe I stayed on! I remember a few sweet, daring girls a couple of years older than me (a big red-headed kid), and being mortally bashful around them, and swapping stories while sitting on fences, and the smell of the tack room, and washing and scraping horses in the summertime. I couldn't get over how some of the horses, with their big, thick lips, could surgically pick their daily dose of medicine pellets out of their grain, eat only the grain, and leave a little pile of the pellets on the ground outside their stall windows. Those are such good memories. I hope all the Thompsons are well.
