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

Sweet Feed is So Good!

It's been in the -20C range at night so the girls are getting about a pint of sweet feed a day as a heat source. Oats and molasses must taste pretty good because the horses kind of swarm me. They come in close and fast, but know not to go for the bucket until it is spilled on the ground. Alpine, then tucker and finally Biz get their rations as per the established pecking order.

 Brooklyn is content to check the hay loft for mice or cats. She saw a cat in there about 2 years ago, and always checks to see if it has come back.
It was nice to see some sunshine again and hang out with the critters particularly after the last week. The truck failed to the cost of $500 and the septic pump failed to the cost of about $700. The driveway was ploughed out three times due to unforecast snow storms and all this while fighting cold temps and high winds ( wind chill of -31C)

Now all is up and running and the Grey Cup game is about to start. Have a great week!
