    Vida and the Armadillo

    On our trail ride at our city lake, we came across several armadillos. I just happened to have my camera out when I spotted this one. As I was taking the photos it acted like it didn't even see us. Suddenly it looked up, saw us and made a mad dash between Vida's legs. She was such a good girl, she just stood there and let the critter make its escape under her belly.


    Here it is doing the dash. I was amazed the photo came out decent you can see Vida's black foot on the left bottom side

    Gotta love interaction with the wilder side of nature. Armadillos, porcupines, turkeys, and even deer are cool but I can't stand skunks. Lol

    We ran across 5-6 of the armadillos. I'm amazed at how quickly they can move. We saw 5 bald eagles which is always a thrill to me. They winter here so they're only around for a few months of the year.

    That is a good horse! I would hate to find out what Bobo would have done.

    BTW, I never knew that armadillos were that far north.

    My mom says armadillos arent real. When we lived in texas all we ever saw were dead armadillos on the side of the rode. One ran past us at disney once but she says it was a mechanical prop......

    We have some friends who play a game called "Dilla" when they're on a road trip with the kids. Points for every dead armadillo and points taken away if its tire retread instead

    Iride- I think their habitat has moved. When we first moved to Kansas I never saw them. Now they are common.
