Yesterday this fella was up close to the house. We have seen lots of snakes over the years sense we have been here. When we were building the place we killed 5 or so, right here around the house. The past couple of years we have seen fewer but they are still out there. Most of the time the horses don’t seem to mind them and the dogs keep their distance, which is a good thing. Thought you might enjoy seeing this guy. He is pretty average in size, almost 4 ft. They can sure get a lot bigger. He is a diamond back, or a coon tail, as they are called around here, because of the rings around his tail, like a raccoon.
Will ride Pepe again today. He continues to make progress and is starting to settle in to his place in our herd of two. He will be here a couple more weeks which will give us the chance to really instill in him some skills that is owner, Laurie will be able to use to continue his education.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
