I have had to be outside after dark lately to work with one of my mares. I know I am alone but I feel the wild eyes of those animals that roam the area at night. I see quick darting movements and hear rustling sounds as the animals pass through the pasture to the creek. Coyotes abound in the area as well as deer and occasionally a mountain lion is spotted near the creek or roadway. The night is another world of activity and one I usually visit with a very big flashlight. Thinking about what goes bump in the night has made for, "A Painting Day".
