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

Riding Day

Yep, Biz is starting to shed pretty good. I figured on grooming her up and taking her out for a little spin, then trimming her feet after she was compliant.

Here she is being a good horse and standing still with the reins loose.

The game plan went pretty well until she decided without permission to leave the driveway. She jumped into the snow bank and sunk right up to the top of the saddle. I bailed out at this time, as I knew she would rear up and spin. Until I got off she couldn't move. After that, she stayed on the plowed road. We had Boots , Brooklynn and our neighbours two labs come along for the ride. After that, it was do the feet. The frogs were not in good shape so were trimmed back. The toe nails were about a half an inch long and were nipped off. Each dog got his own toe nail to chew on. What's with dogs anyway? I can't imagine anything more revolting than chewing on a horse's toe nail. Obviously, there is something in it that dogs like. It looks like our weather is finally starting to turn for the better.
