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

Another Good Ride

Another sunny day at the freezing point. Tucker was not laughing so hard today when I caught her. She did enjoy the outing, but is still a little lame. Hopefully it is residual from the abscess from the spring and not arthritis. She is after all, almost 25.

 She enjoyed the open fields away from all horse eating objects, real or imagined.
 I include an older picture taken when I had company on the ride. It is much more fun riding with others. this is the field in back of us.

Ian, I read the Fern Valley posts... what good advice. We have not had ponies here for a while, but the feed situation here is getting crazy, and though we were going to get two this coming week... I am having second thoughts now. At 9.00 a bale of hay (square bale) with two mouths to feed... we may have to wait until spring. Good reminders on how to be the calm, safe boss, though... and I'm glad I read them!

I feel for the poor girl. Hope she will heal during the winter season and can run around again in spring time.

Great shots Ian. I love the perspective above the horse ears and overlooking your view.
I wished I could have been there with you guys.
Hugs Dagmar and have a happy sunday.
