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

Elk, Getaway,Part Two of Three




 I took the opportunity to take a few Elk pictures on the trip. We have a few in the area around the Acreage, but they are very elusive, so any opportunity to get some good photos should be grabbed. About 2 months ago, these bulls would be scrapping with each other. Now they are getting along really well.



When it is sunny, and warm, they seem to be pretty laid back.
No trophies in the lot, but some nice bulls. The full curl ram  http://wildwestfarm.blogspot.com/2011/11/it-was-time-for-getaway.html was a ram that would be very high in demand, and worth a lot of money!

The cow elk was very laid back and content just to watch the bulls approaching.

Great Photos Ian! You need to get a job as a photographer with the National Geographic Magazine. Of course they would probably ship you over to Africa to take pictures of lions a & monkeys.
