Last night I heard coyotes, or what I think are coyotes, for the first time. It started out with a single one making little yelps. I thought it was a cat since my neighbor has many barn cats, but soon it turned into a chorus of what seemed like 10 doing their yelps at the same time. Do these sound like coyotes? Me and my mom noticed them when it was dark out, (11:00 pm and 7:00 am). Our horses are stalled at night, but are coyotes horse aggressive? Also, if I rode my horse back to where I think they are, would they attack us?
I'm just really curious where they are since I lived out here in Grand Haven, MI for 8 years and never heard them. I am a very solid rider so I'm fairly certain if my horse spooked or we had to flee, I could make it home quick. (1 minute gallop from our house to what field I think they are in)
Anyone else have experience like this?
