Through several seasons the fields were home first to a small herd of unruly outfitter horses, then to an ever-changing group of cows and calf's meandering in and around the fields between home and studio.
Deer and a few moose wandered through occasionally, as did other animals, including foxes. Spring and fall would bring the anticipation and surprise of catching a glimpse of swans and smaller birds migrating through, then hawks or eagles returning to nest for the summer, hunting mice and gophers.
