Yesterday I glanced out the window and was surprised to see larger animals grazing there!
The little herd moved away as soon as they saw me. I took a few pictures and then called Animal Control at the sheriff's office. My theory was that the animals had escaped from a farm on Richardson Road.
By the time the Animal Control officer located the farmer and he showed up in his pickup truck, the herd had disappeared in the direction of the dam. The farm is just past there, across a little creek and a fence.
The farmer's son located the animals among the trees across the dam. He tried to get them to go through the fence but there was no opening at that point. Suddenly they reappeared and thundered along the top of the dam, followed by the farmer's little dog!
I don't usually post two views so similar but I think you should get a closer look at the herd dashing along. Click on the picture to see it full-size.
We had sleet and ice later that day so I'm glad the animals got home safely.
