Ah Poo

I love my family. I love my kitchen too. Where else could you listen to people joking about skunk scat and who else would you find doing so?

Yeah, truly.

See, we are not scatological experts or anything so some of the....stuff...we find remains a mystery. We were pretty sure the little collections of fruitiferous matter in the cow barnyard originated with a skunk. When I discovered that the material was apple, berry, and yellow jacket, we decided that we were right.

And that is when the joking came in, "Burns a little going down, but not bad...not bad at all."

And then there was the bigger fruit flop out on the hills. I debated over that one too. Coyote? Bear?

It was pretty big and consisted almost entirely of apple....hmmm....

Then Becky pointed out that the coyotes have been out in the orchard tuning up every night.

Nuff said.

Wow! I'd never have identified that "stuff."
Oh my.

Cathy, there is an endless variety of it out on the farm road where I walk. Makes the rustling in the bushes a little disconcerting sometimes. lol

BZ, if you say so. lol

Linda, lots of them too!

In our area on a good year for rosehips, the coyote scat is
red and full of hips.

Kathy, it amazes me what they eat. Lots of bunnies, all sorts of fruit, etc.
