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

Bits and Pieces

Once the moose move in, the willows and shrubs start to suffer. It's not all bad because when the snow is deep, food is a little scarce for bunnies etc. I've noticed over the last few years the rabbits seem to follow the moose. Moose break it down, leaving tender tips available at ground level.

 Brooklyn was feeling lazy and decided to watch me rather than join me on the walk.
 This must have been a fairly inebriated mouse as he certainly did not walk a straight line!
 Even though it's only coming up mid February, the mild temperatures and additional sunlight is causing the melt rings around the tree trunks. Spring...Bring it on!
As you can see, there is not much happening on the Acreage. Tomorrow it's trim Tucker's feet day and clean up the paddock again. Oh yeah, coffee at 09:00 at A&W with the boys. I'm getting tired just thinking about all that activity.

Always appears like postcards! But, I know it comes with a lot of stress as well. This is the part of blogging that I love, the REAL world view through an individual's own lense.

Thank you!

Why walk in a straight line, when you can make designs in the snow!

Big mouse!
Wow, a mild February for you. Do you think spring break-up will be early in the North this year?
