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

Some Things are Missing in Town

In town it's difficult to appreciate the night sky due to the light pollution.

Stepping outside in the morning certain things are missing. You just don't see these in town. The next three photos show what is not present.

The first one is one of my favourites where Brooklyn saw her first moose. She was not sure what it was, so decided to lay down and observe. The shot was on the Acreage at first light and turned out pretty good for hand held low light. Brooklyn weighs 109 pounds to give you some perspective of the size of the cow.

The shot below was of a cow moose and two calves that wandered up to the house. Again, captured at first light from the deck.

Of course, Whitetail Deer were a dime a dozen. I kind of like the look of this doe that has just given birth within the last few days.


These have been posted before, but remain some of my many favourites.

Unfortunately, you are right. Can you go find the nature once the weather warms up?
Brooklyn = 190 pounds? Surely you meant 90... right??? :)

Beautiful pictures. That moose is huge. I can see how these things would be difficult to find in town.

These are all nice, but that first one is incredibly good! Love the dog laying down and checking out the cow.
