Does anyone have any ideas as to what may be visiting the farm? I’ve seen tracks that were only a foot or two away from the barn doors.

These are the best tracks I could find. They don’t appear to be dog related. My first guess was possum or raccoon. These tracks are the size of really big dog prints. There can’t be too many options. Bobcat, coyote, Wolverine, skunk? That’s about all I can think of that could possibly be I the area.

There's nothing there to judge size by.... You should lay something beside the track of known dimensions for comparison... like a quarter or dollar bill, or baseball... you know, something. Looks like you took real "close ups". They don't look like dog/canine prints as there are no pad depressions, just "toes"... Hope you can figure it out.

I hadn’t even thought about that. Since they are in frozen sand I’ll try to get them later with an object to compare them to.

There are two dogs on the farm. But they are always tied up when outside. They are runners and have been known to run a couple miles before they could be caught. That was my first thought as well. I do know there are coyotes out there. They are constantly being heard out there.
