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

Progress on the Acreage


The last few days have been pretty busy, with gardening, chickens and building an expanded hay shelter. It won't be long before the first cut of hay will be done, and we have to be ready. We had too much spoilage last year, even though the bales were tarped.

Two turkeys and a Sussex Cross.








 The chicks are now 8 days old, and capable of flying to a height of 12 inches, almost over the barricade. There are 4 turkeys and 2 Sussex Cross, plus one white leghorn in the picture. They do grow fast!

The aftermath of a Thunder-Boomer that just passed through. We needed the rain!



Boom is eyeing up the fresh grass. You can see the herder of horses and chief chicken watcher lurking in the background. He will sit there for hours keeping an eye on things.

Ditto for Tucker.

It's hard to believe that those cute little critters are going to grow up and be a Thanksgiving Day Dinner. Mrs. Geezer can't hardly wait!

They are growing up very nicely. I am sharpening the forks now and picking my dressing for the salad.

We had a sheltie, she herded ourselves all time. Sometimes she even get them running in the corral. She was a great dog but her built in herding instict was a nuisance at times.
