A Word a Week Challenge – Fur

This week, Sue’s challenge word is Fur. That pretty much means animals for the most part. It’s odd, as I look through my photos, though most mammals are covered in fur, we don’t really think of it as “fur” when it’s an animal like a cow, horse, or other non-domesticated animal that has a covering that’s not long, shaggy and soft. I don’t even think of a cow as having fur but of course it does.
