Sheds

This is the first one I have found this shed-season. Very small, but in excellent condition. It wasn't hard to find as it was right behind the house. No sign of the other one, which is not unusual since they almost never fall close to each other. This one has all the signs of being a fresh shed, including the little pink dot in the center of the crown. Late drops seem very common out here.

I find a lot of sheds on the prairie. About this time of year I start looking for them. The Rhino is a good platform for that. Driving around with a good pair of field glasses is a great way to spot them before the grass gets a growth spurt as they can often be seen from half a mile or more.

Well the good thing is the shed looks promising for future years. I haven't had the time to venture out looking for sheds myself. Maybe during turkey season I'll find a few.
