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

The Cackling of Geese...Why They do It


It’s a sure sign that winter is approaching. The flocks of geese are becoming less and less, meaning that the majority have left  Dodge for the warmer south.

The classic “V” formation is a wonderful sight and an aerodynamic marvel
As normal though, the Ganders are in the lead setting the pace and doing most of the hard work. Not to be outdone, the hens are in the back cackling up a storm.
“George, you’re off course”
“George, speed up, all the good condos will be taken at this pace”
“George, lets go down in that field. Junior needs to go potty”
“George, why have you got ear muffs on?”
“George.....”

Most of our birds are gone too - horned larks, bluebirds, swallows, meadow larks, etc. Sparrows and my favorite, Great Horned Owls, are here to stay for the winter.

LOL! "George, just stop and ask directions already!" :)

Geese are a marvel of nature for certain.

I actually thought I was going to get the scientific reason! ... but then, maybe I just did! :)
