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

Well, not really. Alpine took over from Tucker as the Alpha mare. Now and again, she will show a little affection towards Tucker.

You can see the effects of the fly bites on Tucker. She is healing up quite nicely. Pardon the dirt, but a good roll seems to take the itch out for a while. I did just brush her just before taking the photo.

Nasty flies. The back scratch must feel good. Sweet photo.

Beautiful horses. Makes me miss mine, even though it has now been some 24 years since we sold our last ones. Irene had a nice Mustang filly named Ginger. I can't even remember the name of my horse, wow - the years have taken their toll!

I love it when my horses do this :-)

Darn flies! They were bad here, too.
