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

November 24, 2013


Today, all is packed and waiting for the move. December 6th is only 12 days away, and all the hard packing is done. Nothing left to do, but take the two dogs for a snowshoe today. I had to kick Boots off the bed, but he came, and enjoyed himself.

This is probably too many pictures, but there is not that much time left on the Acreage. A guy has to make do with what time is left.

Coming home from church this morning, we had to stop on the road for a cow and calf moose. They were in the middle of the road eating road salt. The calf was down on his front knees. kind of cute! you know where my camera was, right? Yep, at home on the kitchen table. Grrrr.

The sun is pretty far south now.
 What am I doing here? The bed is much warmer!
 Snow is tasty!
 Can we get going? Why isn't brooklyn breaking trail? She is built like a snow plow!
 I think I buried a bone somewhere around here.
 What's this about me being a wide load? besides you buried the bone over there.
 Over here?
 Let me show you.
 I think it's here.
 Or maybe here.
 Never mind my slave will get me another!
 Oh, give it up! The bone is gone!

Thanks for taking us on your walk...what fun they must have been having. I was shivering, but I'll admit the snow is beautiful!

Hi Ian,
I've always loved your dogs, Boots and Brooklyn, since I first joined your site. I love to see their photos and stories.
I am going to miss your farm tales so much after you move away from there.
I hope you will keep us updated in your new place.
I am sure you will take your 2 dogs. They are great watch dogs.
I pray your dear wife is getting better and ready for the big change with the new lifestyle.
I am really glad to have met you in Blogland.
I began to blog in 2009...
Thank you for adding me as your friend! Welcome Aboard!
Greetings from Poet Starry.
