Creepy Evening

This evening I happened to look out the window and I saw something I haven't seen on our property before. A coyote. They don't generally worry me too much since we don't have anything for them to get, except the barn cats, but what can you do? They manage to stay safe for the most part. But seeing this coyote trotting across our back field was just kind of unsettling. It was neat to see him and I wish I could have gotten closer to take better pics, but there is just something about those animals that creeps me out! I watched him follow our fence line to the neighbors property where this pic was taken.


Cody was going crazy barking at him and the horses were just watching. Jim was in the barn so I beeped him on his phone and told him to go look. You can see him peeking around the corner of the barn with the horses. Mr. Coyote just trotted right between our barn and the neighbors house without a care in the world, maybe heading to the woods or a pond up the road. It was neat to see him, but I can do without seeing him again. Just hearing them howling at night is enough to send shivers down my spine!

Wow! That is pretty scary, but it is a really cool picture!
We hear the coyotes all the time, and very close. But thank goodness I haven't seen one yet. I think a coyote got my cat 6 months ago though. They never used to be that close to home, and now they are right in the backyard.

i pray coyotes stay away from our farm...they are very quiet except for the howling. i used to see them about a mile from our farm where i used to board...would go on a trail ride with jess and they would quietly just disappear...one time i turned around and walked back to the ring. scary. hope your kitties are ok! close those barn doors at night! cricket didn't come home last night. now i am really worried...
