They've Woken



Look what we found this afternoon at the pond...yep a snake. I don't know what kind it is, hopefully it's one of those harmless kind. Now I'm worried about my mama goose and her eggs, although she's down at the other end so hopefully the two will never meet!

  5. Looks like a rat snake; they are a protected species.

    This photo reminds me of 5 grown men that I once saw chasing a rat snake with hoes and rakes for about 10 minuets. The poor thing was trying to run away. I told them it was harmless.

  8. oooohhhh no! I can't bear to look either! You need some lime, the white chalky powdery stuff to make a line around the goose (far away from her). They say snakes won't crawl through it. Don't know if it's true.

    hope the geese will be safe and sound.
    maybe you will have to have a snake round-up and relocate them elsewhere? a thought.
