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

What to do on a Warm Day

A warm day is a great opportunity for a ride. At just above freezing and with a light snowfall, an hour and a half went by pretty quick. I took Biz and my two dogs up to one of the open fields where we played for a while in the untracked snow. It was extremely quiet, so much so that we spooked two white tailed deer out of the willows. Biz took it in stride. No spooks and no flinches.Each time out, I am getting more impressed with her. She is starting to pick up the concept of neck reining real well.

 After the ride she was content to chew on some apple flavoured horse treats and enjoy the warmth of the sun.

A warm day also is an opportunity to hang out with the horses, fill the water trough and generally give scratches to all.

Tucker was content to give her the old horse laugh. Little does she know that she is next in line for a ride. We'll see who laughs then.

 Alpine was content to make some Zeds. She was ridden the other day.
