Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Extra Horses

For the past six years, every February these guys show up. They seem to come out of the valley and hang around for a few weeks. To give some perspective, the top fence wires are 4 feet off the ground. These two are a cow, bull pair. The bull has lost it's antlers but is readily recognizable by the long bell under his chin. What is not shown are my 3 horses going absolutely nuts in the field, running, blowing and snorting. you definitely do not want to be on board when this is going on!

I tried to get some better lighting, but they were feeding and moving off, probably to find a sunny spot to sleep. The bull was not overly big, probably about 1000 pounds.

I kind of think that horses consider moose to be a horse designed by an engineer. Can you see the "Toyota" label on the butt of the one?
