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

Newest Acquisitions to the Acreage

This is what I like about living on an Acreage. You never know what the morning brings. I went out on the deck with my grand daughter  and found these three about 100 yards from the house. The cow moose was looking very good and so were her twin calves of this year.

The calves sure grew quickly. Normally we don't see them up this  way until January. For some reason they were early this year. Boots and Brooklyn both ignored them.
The two calves were bedded down in this hollow when I first saw them. I don't know where the cow was, but I suspect that she was still laying down.

Moose are rather neat things to have around, but not if you are a horse. All three horses were on high alert, prancing and blowing their displeasure.

All in all, though, not a bad way to start out the day!

I apologize for the slightly out of focus pictures, but  at first light, the only steady rest was the top of a fence post. They turned out not too bad for 1/8 of a second shutter speed.
