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

Soggy Days

We have had rain 4 out of the last 5 days, sometimes really heavy. Other than not being able to get much done outside, it sure has made the grass grow! The lawn requires mowing twice a week.

 The horses are happy with the new grass. I have been introducing them to fresh grass for about two hours a day to try to get their systems adjusted. The expression "loose as a Goose" also applies to horses!
 Brooklyn is not really scowling, just finishing up a rawhide bone. This is her leave me alone face. She is rather pampered.
 Guess where the horses are. Boots is having to sit up now in order to see his herd.
The horses here are just easing back into the holding area, heading for the barn so to speak. Friday is supposed to be a better day so I can resume my summer activity, lawn cutting.

Those are some seriously beautiful horses. I can't get over how shiny their coats are! I love the expression of your dog chewing the rawhide. Everything looks so lush, rich and green.

Your horses have a beautiful sheen to them! As always, love the dogs. Hope your Friday is a dry day for you!
