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

Through the Trees

They're back! Actually they just disappear for a day or two. The little buck has grown his horns from button to about 6 inches and two points per side. It will be interesting to see if he adds any more points.

 As you can see, the whitetails get along very well with the horses, and vice versa.
 There were four in the holding area, all at one time, but frolicking around so much, I couldn't get all four in. One young buck, one doe and two fawns from last year. The fawns were just like kids. When mother was bothered, she put the run on them and they just kept egging her on.
They really do like my salt lick!
 The adults go over the fence and the youngsters tend to slither through. They don't seem to mind the barbed wire.

so cool that the horses don't even react (and vice versa). increasing your herd. :)

Don't you enjoy seeing them?! We always love seeing animals come out of the woods on our farm.
