For the past six years, every February these guys show up. They seem to come out of the valley and hang around for a few weeks. To give some perspective, the top fence wires are 4 feet off the ground. These two are a cow, bull pair. The bull has lost it's antlers but is readily recognizable by the long bell under his chin. What is not shown are my 3 horses going absolutely nuts in the field, running, blowing and snorting. you definitely do not want to be on board when this is going on!
I tried to get some better lighting, but they were feeding and moving off, probably to find a sunny spot to sleep. The bull was not overly big, probably about 1000 pounds.
I kind of think that horses consider moose to be a horse designed by an engineer. Can you see the "Toyota" label on the butt of the one?
