Rural Life At Peaceful Forest

The heart of the homestead!

Living in a rural setting as this, our horses are used to just hearing the sounds of nature. The sounds of the birds, the frogs, the owls or coyotes at night. None of those sounds scare them at all. They are comfortable here in the middle of the forest.

Earlier this spring, before the bugs arrived!

The soft sound of my husband mowing the lawn with our electric lawn mower excites them. In fact, they nicker when he gets it out, since he empties the grass clippings in the paddock for them to devour. 

Free power from the sun!

Vehicles go by more on the week-end or people partying by the creek across the road at night. Of course, we run a generator during the day when the sun is not doing its job, so they are quite used to that also. I think it bothers me more than them. For the most part, it is a very quiet, peaceful way of life for all of us.
