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

Extending... The Hard Way

The temperature in the daytime has been too hot for hunting, so the "spare" time has been spent between constructing the Men's Shelter at the church and clearing more land for the horses.( Horses = hay, lots of it)

I planted some Horseman's mix last year, but the area was too shaded. It took, but struggled. The solution? Get out the chain saw and let the sun shine in. The burn pile to the right (above) is actually in a gully about 6 feet deep. It is going to go high and hot! A pyromaniac's dream!

The quad trailer has been getting lots of use.

There is still a lot of clean-up to do, but, hey, us retired folks have lots of time to spare. Right! I could use a work party of say; The Old Geezer, Clint, Gregg, Kim, and Texwisgirl, and a few others.

Lots of firewood to haul out and stack. This year I said to myself "Those that want free firewood, come get it, free, where is, as is" However, I seem to be hauling it out again. Oh well, it keeps me out of trouble! And sore!

What say? Any volunteers for a serious work party? There   are still two acres to go.
