I rarely go up to the back of our property. I don't need to except when someone crashes through our fence and I have to take photos for insurance. This was about a month ago when the grass was still green. It's brown now. Getting browner every day. *sigh* So much brown.
I used to keep about a dozen horses on the property and had anywhere from 1-3 foals each year for six years. That's the reason for all the fencing, the corrals and mare motel. It's a lot for two small donkeys, two dogs and 17 chickens. Yes, I have the horses, but they don't stay here. That leaves more room for everyone else....the deer, the skunks, the neighbors' cats, thousands of ground squirrels, and others.
This house and property was a MAJOR fixer upper when we bought it ten years ago. I am not going to share the "before" photos because I have put those images out of my mind. This is home today:-)
