It's a monster.....that guy is huge.

Bigger visitor to my pond was my neighbors 100lb. Lab, who decided to plop down and cool off in there.

Yeah, he certainly looks intimidating...
He's a steer though (castrated) so he scares away just as easily as the other 20 cows that were with him this morning. One cow actually fell into the pond this morning, and as it was climbing out I'm sure it did some damage to the liner.
Probably give me the reason to get rid of the liner next year and go to bentonite...

Darn huge! The deer have hoofed their way out of my pond a few times, so far, even with those sharp hooves, no damage.

Your pictures are never boring. I love it that he stuck around long enough for you to get his picture. And he even looked at the camera! Have you had any moose come back to your pond?

I think that steer would let me come up to him and touch him, if I was patient enough. I wouldn't want to be in the way of those horns though if he turned his head suddenly.
We haven't seen moose here in a while, the grizzly bear population is increasing (that's a good thing) so we've seen more of those lately. Maybe that's why no moose.
No bears in the yard yet though, that I know of.
