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

A Horse Designed by an Engineer!

 I believe that the word Moose means "Eater of twigs" in Ojibwa. At least that's what I was told back in my younger days.

This gal showed up this morning along with last year's calf. The calf was in the bush and I couldn't get a picture, so you are stuck with the cow.
 The cow was doing some willow trimming for morning breakfast.
 As you can see, the moose and the dogs have things worked out. Brooklyn barked a couple of times, got too close and the moose did a couple of half hearted kicks then resumed eating.
 Moose are funny critters, but extremely fast when they get moving. This one was not in the mood. I think she was mooning Brooklyn!
Brooklyn is about 100 pounds to give you some perspective of the size of the moose.

We just ambled down the driveway to get the photos. She knew I was there, but saw me as no threat.

Hopefully, I have not offended any engineers out in blogland. It's been a kind of running joke over the years.

What's in your front yard today?

My front yard is rather boring today, compared to this! Just a bunch of birds and freshly mowed grass!

Lots of birds and one squirrel that I would rather not have. Hope he doesnt decide to mess with my apple trees! I may have to get rid of him if he doesnt go back home.

Love living my life of having land vicariously through your blog. Moose are funny critters aren't they! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Moose can be hilarious. Love the photos, Ian. Thanks for sharing.

Brooklyn is one brave dog. I love the pictures but am very happy the moose is in your yard and not in mine.
