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

Easter Sunday.. A Gal With Her Horse

After a very good Easter Sunday service, we decided to tack up and go for a ride. Elaine had not ridden since the fall, but did exceptionally well. The horses are all shedding like crazy, so the area around the fence was like a hair carpet. Elaine took her horse, Alpine, and I chose Biz. 

After checking out whether Alpine was in a receptive mood, (she was) we went around the field once just to make sure. Alpine tucked in behind Biz as if she was glued there.

 Following the test flight , we went out on the county road, followed by 3 dogs, and then down to the end of the next subdivision. There were no slips and no slides and only one minor spook caused by Biz..reason unknown.

All in all, it doesn't get much better than that for a nice relaxing day!

We hope everybody had a great Easter, and remembered the true meaning of Easter.

Oh yeah, pardon the mud. It is starting to dry out, sort of, maybe.

Nice to see that things are thawing out for you. And, great to see everyone out for a ride on Easter afternoon.

Happy Easter Ian!

This sounds like a great way to spend the afternoon...glad to see your snow is melting!

Seems odd to see snow on the ground.....riding with the dogs in tow must be challenging at times as well.

What a lovely way to spend Easter Sunday, Ian! While our church did hold services, hardly anyone made it there due to the snowstorm, including me.

And since when do horses need a reason to spook? The faint possibility of imagining a mere shadow of something possibly scary is reason enough, don't you think?

Looks like you had a gorgeous day. Hopefully, everyday you'll see the snow recede. :-)

The first picture which captured the sun through the trees is really lovely. It's belated, but I hope you and yours had a wonderful Easter :-)
