Town Ridge Road, County Route 36, Norfolk NY - Part 1

I was returning home from the veterinarian's office (Draco was sick) and it was such a lovely day that when I passed a road heading off to the west, I decided to give it a try. It was morning and I was driving west, so the sun would be behind me for any photos. The first place was a dairy farm, where I snapped a picture of several cows, placidly chewing their cuds:

They had many long silo bags, perhaps six to eight feet high, with silage stored from last summer:

And old fashioned silos as well. The smaller tower was, I believe, a grain bin:

A sugar house. Family farms in this part of the country often have sugar houses and make their own maple syrup:

More silos, barns and a grain bin:

I stopped to photograph these handsome equines, debating whether they were ponies or miniature horses. I can only guess, of course, but they looked like Shetland ponies to me:

A lovely old farm house, well cared for, with a barn behind it:

Two weathered old barns alongside the road:

And a brick house with an addition - or was it an old frame house with a brick addition?:

A wonderful old barn with a dog kennel in front of it. This was lovely country and I hadn't yet reached the end of the road. I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
