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

February Ride

 +3C (37F), sunny and bright! What more could a guy ask for in a ride? Biz and I wandered down the hill and watched a self-loader work the blow down area. He was loading up a semi-trailer with whole length trees. She was all right with that.
 Then we wandered into a natural gas lease and went in on the road about a mile. great! No traffic and reasonable footing. The Texas gate was plugged with snow. That's how we got in.
Brooklyn and Boots came along. By going a different route, we outfoxed the neighbourhood tag-along dogs. It was peaceful!
Self portrait.

Brooklyn crashed when we got back. Biz elected to roll in the snow to cool down and I decided to go plough off some of the loose snow on the driveway. All in all, a good day!

I LOVE that self-portrait shadow! What a great idea! Looks like you had a calm, peaceful ride... I used to ride in the snow, too.
