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

Quiet Saturday

I found this little buck sneaking along the fence line. You can just see the start of his antlers. By the size of him the antlers will likely be two points each, or in other words, a pickle fork.


 I turned the Gurls loose in the paddock for an hour's grazing on new grass. They are rather tired at this point and pretty laid back.
 Alpine has almost lost all her winter coat and is starting to look shiny again.


I stuck up a few more bird houses this week. They have been sitting on the shelf for a couple of years.

How many birds do you think get a birdhouse like this one? :)

Great photos Ian, That deer, he is thin and your camera picks up even his rough fur, its so good! You horse girls roam around while the black and white border collie keeps an eye on them. Free and God blessed. I wonder if the birds read? LOL, they get lots of instructions.

The horses look great. All sleek and such. The poor little buck looks a little scruffy though. I love the the sayings on the birdhouse! Very creative and smile worthy!! :-)
