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

A Busy Week!

Since the last post, here is a brief re-cap. The horses sold to a good home! The hay sold at what I paid for it.
The property has been shown 7 times and there is a signed contract to purchase, with the usual conditions such as water quality report, real Property Report,subject to financing and inspection report. On our side is the ability to find suitable accommodation etc.

Now, we get to look at places!

I decided to take a few photos of the fall colours around the place, just as a reminder of what was.




It appears Boots is adapting well and has taken retirement in stride. He is eating well, sleeping well, and taken to herding me! Or trying to.

Brooklyn is basically Brooklyn! Eat sleep, go for a truck ride, repeat.

The exodus of surplus material has begun. One large half ton truck of scrap metal has been taken to the dump. The stuff I am keeping is being moved to the garage, slowly, and the shed now has a floor that can be seen. Next on the list is going through the boxes that were stored and not opened 10 years ago. That will be divided into keep, Repeat Boutique, and dump. I would imagine most will go to the dump.

No bites on the saddles yet, and I may have to advertise farther out.

Still in conversion mode from Life on an  Acreage to Life ?
