Please don't kill it, open your window and give him an apple! I'm cold for him/her. Too cute!
Great pic. Your fans come in all shapes and sizes (lol). Wait til s/he tells friends about how well you play!
It looks like a curious calf. Can you tell us the story?
Did he bring along his squirrel friend?
ok Emily, I dare ya to fit him in your violin case
It looks like a young female calf.
They're such curious and delicate creatures for their size. When we were on our land in the mountains this summer, moose were everywhere and 2 trampled right through the lot. They're very observant and alert, but can be quite scary running though a campsite!!
I Love Moose! Here in the Snowy Range they are everywhere. Back in '06 while hunting Mule Deer I came accross an old grey muzzle Bull. HUGE! Afraid of nothing! He turned, looked towards me for a while and turned back towards where he was going and sauntered off. He had cataharacs in both eyes and was gauging every tree as he went so as to mark it so he knew where to go and where he was in his territory, so I think. I was just about 10 yards from him when I ran into him following the marks (looked like claw marks but was his antlers) to see what was making them. Dense combo strand of Aspen and willow; Grandpa of the forrest.
Nice Picks Emily, oh BTW, I have a friend who teaches Astronomy and Astro Physics in my bldg., from your neck of Alsakan woods!
S/he is very cute... are they tame, I mean if you held out a tasty snack, would they take it from your hand?
which end was I again?
Roslind- here in Wyoming, a moose that young have been known to eat out of peoples hands. They are so big it's like they fear very little. But those that lose their fear of people from being fed are usualy the ones that get abused by idiots.
She's just dropping by for the usual cup o' joe.
French pressed. Sumatra.
Royce - that's interesting - it is sad though that there are always idiots around who will abuse the trust of animals. My mom was amazing with wild animals and at various times during my childhood we had birds/squirrels/deer/foxes etc that would come into the garden and take food from her hand. I'm sure that if we'd had moose, she'd have coped with them just fine too!
Did you know that the word "moose" actually means "eater of twigs"? Moose really don't need handouts, just twigs.
Emily- Name your Moose friend, "Twiggy". :^) I think I remember that on Jeapordy they said that the word "Moose" comes from the Algonquine language? And they said it meant something like eatter of twigs?
My mother has been feeding a fox that she calls "Lady" for several years. Lady will nap on the roof of our cars and will eat right at your feet. She will not let anyone touch her! Goooood Fox!
I love your life, Emily! :-)
I thought moose was something you put on your hair.
Good one, Ray. : )
But, c'mon. Everyone knows it's that chocolate pudding the French make so well.
I'm going to pass legislation that outlaws bad puns on all my future blog entries.
Hey David Russell, I'll trade you places! --for a little bit... :)
Definitely not a thoroughbred.. Is it even a horse?
