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

The Joys of an Early Melt

This normally doesn't happen until March, but we got it, 2 days of +8C! This was our driveway this morning before I chewed it up with the quad and harrow, then sanded. Glare ice and slightly wet making it almost impossible to stand on. It also rained during the night. Rain in February! Only in Alberta! I chewed it up pretty good as we are under a snowfall warning tonight with another 15 to 20 cm forecast. I wanted some grooves to hold the snow and make it less slippery.

The only people happy are the chickens who really enjoyed the warm weather . They got outside to scratch for some of the food tossed into the run.
The pictures might be a little off the next few days as I dropped the camera and broke the view screen. So now it is really a "point and shoot" I hope the screen can be replaced.
