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

45 Years of Dogs

From Top Left Going Clockwise:

JoJo  A loaner dog we boarded for two years. Loved to ride with the horses!

Daphne  Rough Collie and newest acquisition. A great dog for walks on or off the leash!

Brooklyn  Golden Retriever and second newest dog. Will swim miles, but now getting old.

Dusty  Purebred Sheltie (Shetland Sheep Dog) A great bird dog, but other than that, decorative.

Sheba  Yellow Lab. Fantastic retriever for upland birds, but would not look at a duck.

Boots  Border Collie Kicked 42 times trying to herd horses. Devoted.

Pal  Border Collie  Dog #1 Loved to swim and herd kids when they were at the crawling stage. Would also leap off high places.

Some magnificent animals. And aren't we all the better for them?

The dogs are happy here. They patrol, guard, play with the cats and eliminate the dangerous. There is something they are cautious of. Bobcat, wolf, bear, hogs or what? We've yet to discover. They hang close with hackles raised and do not venture out of the yard when it is around.
