Wildlife Wednesday: The Quick Brown Fox Jumps
One of my favorite things about snow, though, is watching how animals act in the snow. Growing up on a farm, it was always a kick to watch the horses go roll around in the fresh snow, the dogs jumping into snowdrifts, and the cows, well, okay, cows don't do much. (Calves do kick up their hooves a bit in the fresh powder, though.)
Wildlife is even more interesting in the snow, and, when I lived up in Summit County, I was lucky enough on several occasions to witness the unique hunting style of a fox in the snow.
