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

One of Four!

The Downy woodpeckers have returned and it looks like we have two nesting pairs within 200 feet of the house. Over the summer, they get very tame and can be approached  easily. Last year we had 5 babies flopping around and making quite a racket. maybe this year we will have lots more!

I heard one tapping while I ate my lunch but never did spot him.

Wow, great close ups and they are so pretty. I read down to an older post, and I'm sorry about Boom. But you wrote such a wonderful tribute about him. Blessings**
