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

Caught Napping

Sunday was a do nothing day after church. I debated on having a nap, or introducing the horses to fresh grass and horse candy. The latter won out.

I grabbed a lawn chair and vegetated for an hour and a half.

 I am still in the go-slow mode on how much fresh grass the pigs horses get at any one time. It was sunny after 3 days of rain and the grass was growing well. It was also peaceful except for the sounds of heavy munching!
 I chose not to rope off the drive way, but rather go with  the halter and untied lead rope. The horse know to move slow and keep off the rope, or suffer an instant correction.
 Munch, munch, munch!
 Boots took it easy also and kept a good eye on the herd.
 A very good eye!
 A couple of cow birds came in to browse around the horse's feet.
 Boots is not a bird dog, but definitely had an interest in the cow birds.
 Munch, munch, munch!
All in all, a very relaxing afternoon!
