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

Ready to Ride!

The last of the corral, at least the small part is ready to go. The surface crust was cut with the chain saw and tossed aside. The sugar snow underneath was tossed with the snow blower.

My helper declared it ready and left the perch.

It's not a very big riding area, but good for 3 herd bound horses that have not been ridden much all winter. Time to work out the bad habits and start getting them ready for spring.

The weather forecast is -5C (+18F) and sunny for Wednesday. I figure on getting one submissive then doing her hooves. Unfortunately, I won't be able to reward good behaviour with apple flavoured horse treats, as my helper got into the garage and ate them!

Think warm, and keep the horse between you and the ground.
