Well we finished off the large bag of dog food that we had on hand, and  we had to make a decision.  Should we keep feeding our resident foxes, should we buy another bag of dog food or not?  What do you think we did?

It appears we have a youngster, and that they have started to depend on us.  They have been hanging out in the pasture every afternoon.  I think they’re waiting for their dinner.  I know we shouldn’t feed wild animals, but we have to think that by feeding them, a few rabbits may live and hopefully they will stay away from the neighbors chickens and live a little longer.  People around here will shoot them if they mess with their chickens.  Anyway, we’ve decided we need to start putting the food down at different times so they don’t associate the food with us.  I think that may be a little too late, but we don’t want them to be tame.

I think this one is the youngster.  Note the huge ears.
This is my newly mowed pasture!  Notice how high the grass is?  It just doesn’t stay mowed!
