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 Girls ( plus Friend)

Spring time is not the time to be taking portraits because all three of the Girls are shedding like crazy. I have been brushing almost daily, but they still look like woolly mammoths. What can I say? They are horses and aren't too worried about "lookin' good", even though they are all mares.

Tucker's Fire Star aka  "Tucker "

 Tucker is 23 this year and is still going strong, well, slowing down a little. She gave up being the alpha mare when Alpine showed up on the scene, without even a fuss. Tucker is now number 2 in the herd between Alpine and Biz.
Masten Alpine Black Magic aka "Alpine "

Alpine is the queen. When the ears go back and the neck goes forward, it means one of three things:  
1. Coming through! I am the Boss. 
2. Don't muss with 1150 pounds of PMS! 
3. You are too near my feed, my friend, or________ (fill in the blank. 

Biz aka "Biz "
What can I say? Biz is now eight years old, laid back and gentle. She is a nice horse to ride and has good manners.

I put the AKA in just to make her feel good. It makes her feel like royalty having a title.

No paddock pictures today as it is a sea of mud, and you know, the stuff that horses produce. Yecht!

Oh yeah, the "Friend" is still on guard in case you missed him.

I noticed Boots! Caught my eye real quick. Your mares are still gorgeous, even with their winter coats. Love that last photo!

Wow, your gals are beautiful! I love the grey looking locks. Amazing. To me, horses are truly a beast - as far as size goes - but one that can be tamed, taught and trusted. They can be very in tune with us. Amazing creatures.
