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

Start 'em Young!

It was a grand kid day Friday. At the ripe old age of 4, he is quite comfortable being around horses, and knows most of the rules.Although a little young to be riding alone, he is quite content to be led around. The reins are there but the saddle horn gives more comfort.

 The lead horse walker did quite a few laps around the paddock before saying that he had had enough. The rules for grandpa were simple: No running! No fast turns, and no running!


The "cheater" stirrups worked fine. His short little legs would not otherwise reach the peddles. All in all, a fun way to keep him amused!

Biz was very docile and compliant, almost as if she knew there was precious cargo aboard.

Looks like a special day for your grandson and you. That's what great memories are made of, right? And such a gorgeous, well behaved horse too. Have a great week.
