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

Hints of Spring

 The tops of the pussy willow trees are just starting to bud out, a sure sign of spring!
 It's a good thing that they haven't fully come out yet. It is still going down to -10C at night.

The feet however are still in about 4 inches of snow (more like ice). They are tough trees!

The upper pasture should be bare by the weekend, with temperatures in the +9C range.
 Maybe I am just an optimist.
The sky line is about 25 km away, for those that are inquisitive.

The horses are just standing around soaking up the rays. 

Does somebody look a little chubby? Or is it just the camera lens?

Only 4 more days 'till it's officially spring!
