Cold wind and snow. Last night’s low was 21, today’s high 25. A coyote killed a black and white lamb between the curve of the driveway & the basketball hoop and drug it under the fence up against the hill today. So much for human presence as a deterrent. Drag marks in the fresh snow caught our eye. It ate out the guts. Jackie & Tinkerbell, the grandkids bummer lambs (bottle lambs) are safe. Dangers of free range.
