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

What else do you call a koi that is rapidly outgrowing his 35 gallon tank?

We've had him/her for about 3 years ever since he was a fingerling. Other than the dogs and the horses, the fish are the only ones with names. Currently he is about a foot long. I guess one of these days I'll have to take a trip back to the pet store and see if I can barter for a replacement. Anybody got any other suggestions? I hate the thought of him living up to his name.

Besides, the rule still holds that you should never name anything that you could eat. 8-}

Beautiful fish. Koi collectors might pay you quite a few $ for it.

Oh, my goodness, he is huge! What a pretty fish. Wonder if someone with a pond would want him.

Margaret said...

Funniest name for a fish. Yes, would a pond suit him better? He's huge.

Suggestion... put him up for sale on ebay. With the money you get, you can buy another horse or take a vacation to California? Maybe with a little luck you will be here when our next big quake hits.
