    Interesting photo. What was it?

  2. I have a horse or mule skull and it does look a lot like this. One of my friends makes beautiful art with skulls, but I just hang mine around on fences outside, lol. I love the patina of moss or other things that grows on them with age.

    • This one has been by the cabin for as long as I can remember, along with some other assorted bones. One day there were five bucks outside the cabin and one was chewing on the skull. Someone told me they try to get calcium that way, but it was rather bizarre. 🙂

    Context is everything!! Bizarre, but certainly less so in the countryside.

    • Out west, you often find skulls a/o bones. When wild animals die, that’s the end result. 😉. One year while riding, I found a deer jawbone with teeth still in it.

  4. Nice photo, Janet. Perhaps this serves as a warning to the rest of the herd to stay inside the pen.

  5. At least you didn’t wake up and find this in your bed (in Sicily) ;-D

    Nice find!

  6. Lignum Draco says:

    Unusually it looks very clean for a skull left outside in the elements.

  7. Debbie Smyth says:

    I thought it looked like a horse. I don’t want to think about that too much, but I see what you mean about it not looking out of place in its setting.

    • I love horses but they do die and that leaves bones eventually. Sometimes people send an old horse to the cannery for pet food. I think I prefer natural decay.
