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

Getting Ready for Seeding

Maybe I'm rushing the season, but with 2 nice days, the snow is going fast. I still have this area and an equal amount behind me to improve by digging the stumps out and leveling with a pick ax then harrowing to get it level and safe for the horses. After this, the remaining treed part of the acreage will remain as is providing shelter for the deer, moose and the rest of the critters.

My helper is overheating (from hair, not work) and likes to get her belly down in the snow. I guess she does help by making big sticks into little ones.

The holding pasture is starting to dry out again. Biz should have been a boy horse because she sure likes to spend time in the mud. I spent 2 hours grooming all three horses yesterday. You'd never know it by looking at her.

I am sure you are ready to be rid of the winter season. Glad to see your helper taking a break and cooling off :)

WOW! That is hard work. The Commander has been leaving the stumps here for the animals and father time to take care of, your method is quicker but much harder.

I can imagine how seeing snow melt and feeling warmer weather would get the blood going to start the garden. Sweet photo of your dog. Love that face! As for Biz, perhaps the mud is her "body beauty treatment".
