Creature Feature

What creatures do you have on your farm that are not domesticated animals ?

In the evenings we get lots of Moths - you can see from the pic how big some of them get

I went outside yesterday and this was climbing up the wall next to the door - it's about 3" long. We have regular visits by different things - when I have a pic I will post them.

We have tons of rabbits, and a few skunks that visit way too often...Lol!

Also get all kinds of pretty birds; I think most of them are 'traveling' through at this time of year, but it's still fun to see them out there picking at the ground pretty much right under the horse's feet!

We have coyotes, wolves, a bear, some really odd bugs, foxes, fishers, porqupines, snakes, treefrogs, snapping turtles (in the marsh behind the cow fields) and lynx. There were also some cougar attacks on some cows in the next town over.

It was a chubby black bear lol. He used to hang around a few years ago, but he dissapeared for a while and made another apperence again this summer. No one wanted to trail ride though because we have to cross a road and we were afraid our horses would smell the bear and make a run for it and get hit by a car. lol.
