Jasper, our bull elk, cooling off in his temporary pond. We went from a cold, wet spring to full blown summer in about twenty-four hours. It was a bit of a shock and he’s feeling the heat.
He’s working hard on dropping his winter coat and looks scruffy right now. Under all that wool he has a sleek short coat. It will still take him a while to finish shedding but he’ll look and feel a lot better once he’s done. Right now he just looks a little disgusted.
