Name That Animal - any guesses?

Curious Skeeter! Shayne emailed me these pictures from his phone last night because he took Shayla to the barn and I stayed back to work on my dissertation. I could not figure out the little animal pictures here until Shayne later told me what she ran into while she was out riding.
It is so cute! Any guesses?
Yesterday I spent the day in a meeting at BGSU. This is truly a longtime dream come true! My office isn't totally finished, (I do have a bright orange lamp complete with feather boa to add!). I added more family pictures and "stuff" and I like it much better now. I decided to decorate in orange and brown - BGSU's colors. Go, Falcons!
I still keep pinching myself thinking, "This can't be true?!" Yesterday I also learned one of my former kindergarten students, who later moved to another school, is going to BGSU in the fall! While I haven't seen her for years, I do remember her coming to Christi's visitation at the funeral home, very touching. Little does she know that one day I will drop off flowers for her at her dorm - from her old kindergarten teacher.

I'm guessing a groundhog?!

Total office envy - love it - and also have total envy of your collection of children's books - fabulous.

At the weekend I re-bought (as my own are at home) editions of Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazon books. Was just thinking that I was about Shayla's age when I first read them - perhaps as she's an outdoorsy kind of girl she might enjoy them now too (though could just make her put pressure on Shayne to get her a boat!). No horses in them though...

is it a muskrat? I think that is what they are called...

Too easy, that's a ground hog. Tell Shayla to be careful out in that field, if there are ground hogs, there are ground hog holes that can be dangerous if Skeeter would fall/trip over one

Um, armadillo? Just a wild guess!

My first guess was a badger...but it doesn't seem to have the "mask" across it's face. So my next guess is a groundhog.

My guess is a Chinchilla (sp?)

Having a former kindergarten student at BGSU. Too funny!

As for the animal, I am going to take a stab in the dark and guess possum.

If I'm not mistaken that little critter in the picture is a young groundhog or, as some call them, a whistle pig.

Is that a grey squirrel? Or an opossum? Well, at least I am sure that this is not an elephant!

Amazing, by the way, that Skeeter seems to stay so calm - my horse was once sooooo scared of a very dangerous and threatening baby-hedgehog, hee hee!

All the best, Charlotte

I'm voting for a groundhog.

Skeeter is really a beautiful animal. I'm so glad Shayla has the opportunity to be a "horse person". She looks like a natural!
