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

Turned Loose

The horses were starting to get a little bored with the containment pasture so I decided to put them in the lower pasture. They can do the least damage down there.They took off so fast that I was kind of caught flat-footed, with the camera not quite at the ready.
 It would appear that anything green is probably an endangered species. Hopefully, the green will grow faster than it can be munched.




Biz was all over the place at a full gallop checking out what was new edible.













 Alpine went her own way, also
checking out the territory.






After about 10 minutes of running around, they settled down.


There is seldom a dull moment on the Acreage!

That first photo is worthy of enlargement and hanging on your wall! It almost looks like a painting..gorgeous. Seriously, stand back and look at that photo! I would so be hanging that one!

Beautiful horses. I especially love the first and last photos.

I really like the colors of the horses against the neutral colors of nature. Very nice! Horses are some of the most graceful creatures God has made. So beautiful!

BTW, DebH is right about that first photo. What a great wall picture that would make.

Great photos! I think horses are like us and get cabin fever being penned up in closer/smaller quarters for the winter also.

I love the action photos. Very dreamy. I'm sure you're dreaming of green, green, green along with the horses. :-)

I like the 2nd and 3rd ones, not sure if you intended the blur or not, but it is a great effect. As to your last post, we have the same saying, If you don't like the weather in the Cariboo, wait 5 minutes"! (though I've never thought to take photos of the same scenes a few hours apart, its a good one...would make a good scrapbook page, which I am always on the lookout for.)
