Trail Cam Pics

23 Dec

Well, I figured two days might be long enough to get a picture or two on the trail cam, so I went and checked it out this afternoon.  Sure enough.  I got something!

Can you read my mind?  “Is it working?  I can’t see the red light blinking.”  Anyhow, I kept scrolling through the images and found a pair of fat raccoons.

Then there was this one.  Can you see them? You can click on the image to make it larger.

I think there are three coyotes–one by the den and two to the left.  I guess that answers my question.


A New Camera

21 Dec

After my walk in pasture last weekend, I decided I needed a new camera.  I found this freshly dug den.  Note the paw prints all over the dirt.

I got a trail camera.

I’m pretty sure this is a coyote den.  It doesn’t look like it’s been occupied since I walked past it on the weekend, but our weather is warm, so it might just be waiting for cold weather.

I took the camera out and tried putting it on the fence, but I wasn’t having any luck, so I put it on a small tree.

Hopefully, I have it aimed properly.  The white arrow is pointing to the den.

We’ll see in a bit if I’m right on what dug that hole.  I just don’t know what I’ll do if it is a coyote.  I don’t think I’ve shared all of them, but I’ve had five coyote attacks on goats this year. They’ve been horrible this fall.

Margarita is the only survivor.  Yes, those spots on her ears are all from the coyote attack.

Margarita is Home!

18 Oct

I got to bring Margarita home from the hospital tonight.  She’s still on antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory, but she is doing much better.

The car ride home tuckered her out, but I just left her eating some hay and nibbling on the bit of green stuff in the Love Shack pen.

I do have on good authority that it may be (soon-to-be) Dr. Kelsey who spoiled her.  Although I heard rumors of a whole group of vet med students scouring the grounds at the hospital looking for dandelion leaves to feed Miss Margarita.
