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

There is Nothing More relaxing Than...

 watching horses munch away. I finished digging the gardens, cut the orchard lawn, fixed the snow blower so it's ready for next year ( hopefully not next month) and worked on a friend's lawn mower.

There is not much grass in the riding paddock, but enough to keep three horses going for 2 1/2 hours. Alpine was quite content to wander and eat. Typical horse, head down, tail up.
 If you look closely you can see Boots doing the same thing I was watching. Tucker lost a fair bit of weight this winter. We are keeping a close eye on her. She is eating good, been dewormed and seems to be doing better on about 2 to 3 hours on grass daily, along with her regular rations. She is now 23 years old which may be getting senior for a quarter horse. I hope not!

Alpine doesn't look too bad now that her winter coat is gone.
That black lump in the bushes is Boots, watching away. Can a dog have a compulsive disorder?
