My mother received this photo of this spider looking creature with a long tail. I suggested to her that it isn't a real photo but she insists she must know. Are you able to shed any light on this at all??

Is the likelihood of cows and calves getting ill from drinking water from a tank under a walnut tree a thing? Leaves fall into their water and I have heard from unverified sources that this could pose a problem.

I’ve had this on my leg for around a month now - could it possibly have been a spider bite? Or an ingrown hair?

I have Toka and Superior plum trees. It’s their first year in my yard, but they look two years old. Both of these are Japanese x American plum hybrids. I’ve read that Japanese plums should be pruned into a vase shape, but find minimal instruction online on what to do with this type of hybrid. Would pruning these trees instead into a modified central leader be detrimental? I find that shape easier to mow around and it would match my apple trees. A taller tree would also let for me save some of the fruit from the deer in the event that they breach the fence. Thanks, Scott
