  2. One man's cow skull is another man's/mouse's home I guess you could say.

  3. OMG! How cute is that? Although, maybe you don't wish to have them as neighbors?

  5. I thought maybe a wren had set up housekeeping in your skull. Those mice are quite the climbers. :)

  9. I love that first picture!

    The mice in my area don't have a skull to use, so they build their nests in our gas grill. Not the smartest place to raise your young!

  10. Well, I never....really....never. That's one avant garde little mouse. Moved into the artsy part of the ranch. Sorry Smooch, I'm on her side this time.

  11. Ok, I was all ready to say awwww, until I saw the mouse face, then I said ick... I would ivict that!

    I need to take and post pics of a nest I found. I am not sure where the nest was built, found it on the ground not used. Bird used a good deal of my pinto horse's winter coat.

  13. awwwwww! how cute :) I was wondering why Smooch was so interested in the skull.... she should be used to them! but this one has a special treat for her!

  14. Think Smooch will come in for dinner? think the nest is safe from her? I love recycling!!

  15. Well, you know this makes me exceptionally happy. That's such a great picture of Smooch underneath the nest cleverly disguised as a cow skull. My, the architecture in New Mexico is really something!

  16. It is Smooch's version of NetFlix.

  17. I love the first pic, really great. And any mouse thats that enterprizing deserves to stay there. Nothing wrong with a little mouse making snake food. Plus it gives Smooch something to do. Great capture!

  18. next picture will be of a snake dangling from the skull because he swallowed a mouse and can't get out...sounds like a creepy childrens book =o)

  19. yea, Sandy, it also sounds like the "squeakel" (*snort* - I couldn't resist) to the snake stuck in the trailer hitch.
    (Although I don't think my child could re-enact this one, Linda).

    PS: didn't know mice could crawl up walls that well...

  23. I know that you know more about these things than I do .. but are you sure its a cow skull? with the curved horns it looks like a ram's head .. sort of. Not like I know anything about these things or anything ... the last skeleton I found was a plastic one at a yardsale. ;-)
