While I was down at the pond taking photos the other evening, I noticed tracks in the mud.
I saw the turtle tracks first. I think one set comes out of the pond and the other goes back into the water. We have dozens of turtles living in the pond. In the spring when the weather begins to warm up, there are piles of turtles on the bank basking in the sunshine.
Several sets of raccoon tracks.
Steer tracks, and a fainter dog print.
I did not find horse hoofprints; we have 3 troughs for them as well as the pond. No cat prints either, and I'm glad of that. Cats that go down the hill to the horse barn and the pond have a tendency to disappear, so I am thankful that they are staying near the house for now.
