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

Hanging on to Summer!

All the snow has gone and the weather is back into the +20's (C). Is it too much to hope that we just experienced a very short winter?

The raptors are still hanging around. Hopefully the Rough-legged hawks will stay through to spring.



These two are the palest that I have seen. I am not sure if it a winter plumage, or a sign of young birds.




Once again I was caught napping and did not get the focus/shutter speed right.






Daphne is enjoying the minimal snow and mud. I do not have to leash her since she seldom leaves my side. If there is a rabbit, she will run about 50 ft and then come back.


She has a LOT of energy!
