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

A Lazy Wednesday

The leaves are really starting to turn colour and thin out. As long as there is some grass left, the horses are happy. It was my intent today to ride, but I looked at the grass and figured it was time for the last (I hope) cut of the year. It is not a small job and takes about 4 hours to do.

Alpine is turning into a real hayseed. All she needs is a straw hat. Nope, she'd probably eat it!

 Tucker is always looking for food, any food. There are two pastures full of grass, but she chooses to stretch my fence wires.

What else is there to do on a nice, sunny, almost fall day?

Tucker must truly believe that the grass really is greener on the other side of the fence!

Michelle said...

Really beautiful horses. Such expression on Alpine's face.

Terry said...

Alpine is such a beauty.

Gail said...

Absolutely beautiful. Makes me miss mine so much. At least you have grass, many suffering from drought are wondering where the winter's feed will come from.

Margaret said...

Quite the life!!! But grass is always greener on the other side! ha. I do hope you mowed for the last time... I'm ready for that to happen too. ;)

Oh my goodness! Gorgeous, just gorgeous. I'm always tempted to buy a Morgan when I see Alpine. I had a half Morgan, half Arabian before I got married. The BEST horse ever! Yep, you're photos tempt me to relive my youth and just go for it!

Hi there Ian, what a great lazy sunny day..if only I could lay down with the horses...heck I'd even help you out cutting the grass.
Hope you're done too for this season.
Wonderful hugs Dagmar
