Bellbottom Farm came about as an identity for us when I was inspired to bring the family on board in a new endeavor to create a new breed of pony, the miniature gypsy horse.  Having raised Australian Shepherd dogs for 30 years, I believed I could put my education thus far in life to good use in developing a very special small equine with a new look.

Bellbottom Farm resides in west central Illinois where my children are the 6th generation of the Block family in residence.  The Block ancestors were the 2nd settlers to move onto this piece of land that was situated along a major travel route that had been established for centuries by the prairie American Indian tribes.  The land has been good to our family and we thoroughly enjoy and appreciate living here.  I hope readers will enjoy learning about new and old skills involved in maintaining our rural living situation and traditions.  We hope that this blog will be a way to share our agricultural way of life.

    • Thank you, Geralyn! Also, I apologize I have been slacking off on this blog for the past year I guess, and even on my companion blog pages at minigypsy.wordpress.com, I have not been very good this year at posting new pages. Lots of stuff I need to update on! Thank you again and please visit minigypsy blog if you haven’t already.
