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

Been Walk-about


I plowed out the trail to the lower pasture yesterday so decided to go for a walk. We were just starting out and Brooklyn was starting to lag behind, even on a plowed trail.

Tucker on the other hand was keen to come along. Unfortunately, the lower gates were open so she had to stay home.
The trail has been used by 6 to 8 deer and one moose overnight. I did not get any moose pictures, but Elaine watched him/her eat a bunch of twigs on the next property over.



Tucker was watching for our return, or most likely sleeping where we left her.


The day was not all play because the driveway was getting very narrow and the snow had to be moved to make room for the next snowfall. Yes, we will get more! This year's snow fall is less than half what we had last year. The quad could not push it over the edge, and the snow blower was out of gas, so the snow was pushed with the snow scoop. Next year I am going to have to figure out a way to extend the blade on the quad.


When we returned, I had a very tired dog. The snow in the bush was half way up her sides. She is a little too wide to make a good snowplow.

Your dog and horse look beautiful against the white snow. There is a very cool breeze blowing into my cottage and it's making me feel the snow in your post LOL That means it's time for me to hit the hay.

I still can't get over all that snow. Being on acreage in such snow must present such different challenges for clearing/plowing.

I can't even start to imagine...

Your dog is PRECIOUS!
