Property foreclosures are on the rise across the nation, presenting  financial opportunities for real estate investors, first time home buyers, and those looking to move up within the real estate market. So, how can you benefit from the current foreclosure market? Foreclosed properties are often offered at prices significantly lower than fair market value, offering strong financial opportunities to individuals and investors. Investors can purchase foreclosed properties to resell or rent for an immediate income. First time home buyers can often purchase a larger or nicer property. And individuals who are looking to move up within the real estate market can often find a larger property at competitive prices, allowing them to purchase a larger property than they originally anticipated or t...

When I look back at some of our photos, I wonder what is that???  I have on a pack which says I could be hiking, tights that say I could be mountain biking, and a helmet which says I might be riding my horse. You decide! I am four words short of 50 so this will fix that, hopefully.

 Well it's been a long hard slog with this horse.  Now, almost 5 months later (See Blogs on same subject, Parts 1 & 2) his surgery wound has healed up until it's almost gone.  The vet is pleased with the way it looks. With his lump gone and months of recovery, you would think that's the end of it - but NO, we've been through an abscess in his surgery side hoof that erupted in his heel, an infection with a temp of 104.6, blood tests to check organ function, and for Lyme's disease and then three-legged lameness in his other leg that was diagnosed as an abscess, navicular syndrome and finally an injury to his flexor tendon.  All that entailed 2 visits with our farrier, 2 nerve blocks, one to diagnose the navicular (which is wasn't) and one to x-ray for fractures and then a trip to an out-o...

I have two cabins listed, right across the street from each other, at 224 Indian Rock Trail and 225 Indian Rock Trail. What are the chances that BOTH would be under contract in this sorry market, and due to close within the next two weeks??!! It sure feels good for me to see those "Pending" signs and it has been a real positive for visitors to the Big South Fork who came here for the fabulous trail riding during October, our best fall month, because Indian Rock Trail is directly across from True West, one of the area's best-known horse campgrounds.

Trail riders from all over the country know that the Big South Fork National Park in Jamestown, Tennessee is called, "The Trail Riding Capital Of The Southeast, boasting the best riding east of the Mississippi on 180+ miles of trails. What they may NOT know is that there are another 130 miles of spectacular trails, south of town, at East Fork Stables, which are beautifully marked and maintained. East Fork encompasses 12,000 acres, privately owned, and has 150 stalls as well as areas for picketing and pasture. In addition to the campsites, there are cabins ranging from primitive to deluxe, and everything you might need for a comfortable stay. There's a tack shop and and RV shop; you can get ice, propane, firewood, hay and shavings. You can arrange a guided ride. There's an on-call vet an...

Some days, no matter what "home chores" you have waiting, you gotta go ride.  The breeze was wonderful, the falling leaves fanciful and the horses were extraordinary.  We live where all this is just minutes away while some folks trailer hundreds of miles to what's in our backyard.  We are so blessed!

When you live here at the Big South Fork, it's inevitable that you will be going to Nashville at some point, for one reason or another. You may want to take a drive through the campus of Vanderbilt University, known as "The Harvard of The South." Vanderbilt was founded in 1873 with a million-dollar endowment from "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt, a New York entrepreneur who made his fortune in shipping and, later, in railroads. Although he was, at the time of his death, the wealthiest man in America, he is not a noted philanthropist. He initially intended to locate the university named in his honor on Staten Island where he was born and eventually buried. Instead, in choosing Tennessee, although he himself had never been to the south, Vanderbilt intended that his gift would help to heal...

Fall is a favorite time of year for trail riding and nowhere more so than here in Jamestown, Tennessee, in Big South Fork National Park. With daytime temperatures in the 70's, riders enjoy those mellow fall days when the woods are a medley of reds and golds. But riders are the only ones who get out there in the fall; riders must always be alert for ground nests of yellow jackets which commonly build nests below ground in old rodent burrows or other cavities such as rotten tree stumps or fallen logs, fence post bases or river banks and the edges of forested land. They are common in banks of dirt along the edges of the trail. The problem with ground nests is that you don't know they're there until you're on top of them and by then, it's too late! During "bee season" riders can minimize th...

Most horse owners buy their feed from a local tack shop, a farmers co-op or a hardware store and it's usually a brand name like Purina or Nutrena. Here in Big South Fork Tennessee, we can go to a real feed mill with a real miller and see the feed made right before our eyes. It's not easy to find TOP Milling in Oneida, even with a GPS (or especially with a GPS) but, once someone takes you there the first time and shows you the way, you won't want to go anywhere else. The feed looks and smells so good that you could probably eat a bowl of it yourself, with a little skim milk. Owner Bob Thompson, an Oneida native, has worked the land all his life, in one way or another. When the Stearns Coal and Lumber company in nearby Stearns, Kentucky was actively harvesting timber from "the Big Survey"...

Big South Fork Tennessee is horse country but there's more to it than just saddling up and riding off down the trail. Just as you have a semi-annual checkup and cleaning at the dentist, horses also require regular dental care….but their dentists make house calls! Horses masticate their food by grinding grain from side to side, which causes a ridge to form on the outside of their teeth. These sharp points are removed by filing with a rasp; the process is known as "floating" and the rasp itself is called a "float." A horse's bit does not rest on his teeth but rather sits on the bars of his jaw, that is, on the space between his incisors and his molars. The bit must be comfortable for the horse; if it causes him pain, he will toss his head or he may refuse to let the rider put his bridle o...

Big South Fork Tennessee is renowned horse country, but it's so much more than just that. As visitors drive through Fentress County, they'll see bright quilt blocks hung on local barns. In fact, they may come here just to see the quilt blocks, following the Quilt Trail through 27 states and parts of Canada! The concept of Quilt Barns started with a woman in Ohio who wanted to honor her mother's Appalachian heritage by having a painted quilt hung on her barn. The idea spread, not only brightening up barns but bringing tourists; now there are over 2,000 quilts participating in the Quilt Trail. Under the auspices of the Sew Sweet Quilting Group in Jamestown, The Fentress County Quilt Trail took shape. After several local barn owners agreed to have a quilt block installed on their barns, ar...

Everyone who comes to ride in Big South Fork National Park ends up at Charit Creek Hostel, one way or another. It's a memorable experience and, for some, will be the highlight of their trip. Living here, it's a ride I love to take visitors on because I know how much they will enjoy it…and, truth be told, I NEVER tire of going and always look forward to it. Charit Creek Hostel is, in fact, the only lodge within the boundaries of Big South Fork. Nestled in a scenic valley, the main structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was probably built around 1816 and added on to later. It is accessible only on foot or by horseback. The original log cabin may have been built in the early 1800s by Jonathan Blevins, one of the area's original families. The house later became ...

While there has been some controversy surrounding the re-population of black bears in the Big South Fork, there is none at all concerning the introduction of elk in Tennessee. Loss of habitat and over-exploitation by man resulted in the disappearance of elk from the eastern United States and they have not been seen in Tennessee since 1865. At present Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina,Wisconsin, Arkansas and Kentucky have resident herds and several other eastern states are looking into the possibility of also reintroducing elk. Elk have the potential to cause crop and property damage so the present elk restoration zone, some 670,000 acres on the Cumberland Plateau, was chosen since it contains a large amount of public land that has few agricultural crops and...

Visitors to the Big South Fork National Park in Jamestown, Tennessee, traveling up State Highway 127 north, will feel the tug as they approach the Cumberland Country Store in Clarkrange. Heads turn and the car slows… Who can resist a "hole in the wall" country store, with its wagon wheels, milk crates, antique tools, old bottles and massive pieces of furniture? There's something in there for everyone and browsers rarely leave empty handed. Some of the "repro" items are just amusing and make great souvenirs and mementos of a trip to Tennessee. I love the bag that reads "Ain't nothin' like a mint julep and a joint!" (and I've seen it made into curtains in more than one cabin.) It gets better the farther into the store you go. There in the back is the 50's Café, with its black-and-white ti...

The scenery in Big South Fork National Park is pretty spectacular and trail riders often see terrain features that take their breath away. I always carry a camera because I never know when I'll see something I want to show someone. Well, the first of these body parts made me laugh. The second one made me laugh, too. With regard to the third one...there is a tree in Spruce Creek with the most perfect pert, perky pair of women's breasts that you've ever seen, or ever will see. I didn't have my camera that day but the tree was on a trail I ride often so I thought I could easily just go back and get the third part of my tryptych. I never found that tree again..and I've looked! We rode that trail one way and then the other. We rode it forwards and backwards and we looked high and low. We lit...

Big South Fork, Tennessee is horse country and when you have horses, you have a seasonal struggle to keep algae at bay. It thrives in the heat of the summer and even when you scrub it away, it reappears days later. The key conditions for algae growth are nutrients, warmth and moisture. Warmth can be provided by the heat of the sun which is why algae in troughs out in a pasture grows faster than in a bucket in the barn. Nutrients can come from horse droppings in the water as well as hay, feed or leaves left in the water. Horses on pasture will also frequently come to a water trough with pieces of grass in their mouths. Nutrients from these plant parts are then released into the water. Another ideal condition that buckets and troughs offer is that the water is stagnant. Algae grows better...
