This Has Been A Great Winter To Live On A Charlottesville Horse Farm
Every few years winter seems to bypass Charlottesville Virginia. This has been one of those winters. We have had unseasonably warm weather. Yes there have been some days in the 20’s but there have been a lot of days in the 50’s. So far we have not experienced any significant snowfalls. It has been a great winter to enjoy riding on our Charlottesville horse farms.
Many years it is difficult to keep horses in work to be able to compete at the winter horse shows. Not this year. And many years foxhunting has had to be interrupted due to snow or frozen ground. Not this year. Many years we spend a lot of time struggling with frozen water buckets. Not this year.
Today is the first day of February and it has seemed like spring on horse farms in Charlottesville. Robins are looking for worms on the lawn. Crocus are blooming and my daffodils are budding and I even saw a few blooming. Foaling season is under way and what great weather for new born foals to frolic in the fields. I don’t know if the rest of the winter is going to continue to be unusually warm, but I know that we have enjoyed the mild weather so far.
Not only has the weather been heating up but the local real estate market has been heating up as well. Historically winter is the slow time for Charlottesville real estate. Not this year. I have been crazy busy ever since Christmas and many others are having the same experience. Buyers are busy looking at Charlottesville horse farms and homes. Listings are being shown, contracts are being written. If you are thinking of listing your Charlottesville farm for sale in the spring, you might not want to wait because spring may be here already.
