Yesterday we awoke to find coyote tracks in the front yard and horse paddock. It appears that two of them leaped the electric paddock fence and crossed to the woods while one skirted along the perimeter.
The snow is hard now and they can easily run along the surface. While they generally won't bother horses or livestock and it seems they were just passing through, nevertheless their appearance so close by is a bit too bold for my liking. I spent last evening hanging ammonia soaked rags along the perimeter of the paddock in hopes of deterring any future incursions.
