Ok, there are lots of lexically correct words that I use in my original language that is not English, so this’ll maybe sound estrange or incorrect,
anyway I’ll try my best.
I m from a small Spanish town ( which I hate by the way ) located at the top of a hill surrounded by 2 rivers, the Adaja and Arevalillo rivers both
small in…. bed? ( you know, the channel, the river width ). Almost nobody but the oldest go there on today but I usually like to go to take a walk or
simply stay there quietly just thinking.
The fact is, that on one of these days I found strange marks clearly visible in the mud, I supposed that they were normal, cause I’m not any
specialist in footprints but I was thinking and talking about it whit some friends and some days before I decided to go take some pictures of it and
to take some info which I show here.
The footprints Appear to have 6 fingers, 4 at the front and 2 at the rear, they are usually not close one to the other, but I cant secure cause I
don’t know how to follow tracks, but of course if raining you don’t leave as clear marks on the grass, which is highly flatted, and there are mayor
zones of grass than mud. Those footprints has also the same size, 40 cm long, 20 cm width and 6 cm depth in the mud.
A possible theory is that they can be cow or sheep footprints ( 2 frontward at one in the opposite direction ) but it seems too exact for me in
disposition and sizes, moreover, the one at the photo isn’t at the normal route for those flocks, and yes, they move on flocks, so the result would be
a bunch of unrecognizable marks.
I’m actually confused, the footprints seems to end at three zones ( large size? Well, an human whit 2 foots cant event sink 2-3 cm on the mud here,
but yes, this could fit whit cows ) and there is even evidence of tall grass flattered whit what appears to be the same mark on them, but not bitted,
how a cow or sheep would do.
I made the photos whit a digital camera, so they aren’t really are the best quality proof, but shows enough ( of course there is only one and quite
resized, any page in which to upload more for free? ).
Any idea, suggestion or something? I also admit constructive critics about my English level.
Changed the picture, this one looks clearer? Still searching for free pages to upload bigger ones and more...
