Today we decided it was time for our weekly horse check; just to make sure they were still where they belonged (sometimes Jesse takes them on a walk-about). About 200 yards after we turn onto Hwy 72, we see this sign:
So another mile and a half down the road, I see this:
Just to make sure, Bill turned the car around and we drive slowly by as this beautiful, juvenile, female moose happily chews on bushes - right at the edge of the road.
We did get over to the horses, too, who were more than happy to enjoy the apples we had taken for them.
Last week we brought them no food, just a drink.
We spotted 'other' large tracks in one of the fields next to theirs. Some we checked on and they belonged to our guys, but others were obviously a 'different' animal. Wonder if they have met their neighbor moose yet?
Love mountain life!
