Hard to get a good photo of Hudson with three fences between you and him. Here he is playing with a bale of straw. Every time I go to see him he is playing.

This young Pronghorn came running (quite fast) from across the field right at me.  Pronghorns are the second fastest land mammals in the world and can attain speeds of over 86 Kilometres per hour.
