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

View From The Kitchen Window

This doe came in at last light to try out my salt lick. She didn't mind the horses at all. Her fawn from last year came in also, but a little later when the light was gone for photos.

She seemed to know exactly what she was looking for.  The horses paid them no mind at all. Now, we will get along OK as long as she leaves the garden and orchard alone. It looks like it is time to get a new battery and arm up the water canon for the summer.

Potential meat for the freezer this winter?!

Well, if the fawn eats the garden, you eat the fawn. :)

All I see when I look out my kitchen window is my neighbors house :-(

What a beautiful area that you live in. I still remember those days growing up on the farm that I could go outside or look out a window and see deer or other wildlife walking across the fields.

Now, that I live in a neighborhood that used to be an orchard, I do, every now and then see a doe or buck walk up in my front yard. It is such a sight to watch. God bless, Lloyd

MMMMMMM vittles! We have deer that come down to eat our rose petals and the fruit that we leave on the ground when it falls. They are beautiful creatures.

Lovely! I live in a remote area of the southwest USA. It is not uncommon to see Elk sleeping in our meadow, or coyote trying to carry off our chickens. I love browsing around your blog. So nice to see others living the simple life.
