A couple of weekends ago, I was walking around the front yard showing Christian where I wanted him to weed eat when all of a sudden he started yelling. I looked down and found this snake! He said I walked right by it, kicked it and then stepped on his head,lol...
It's harmless enough, just a black rat snake, but not something I like to find in the yard. I was trying to redirect him out into the pasture away from the house, with rakes but he insisted on going right towards the house and disappeared into a hole in the siding, ack!
So a few days later, I left to drop Ashlyn off at school for an event. The boys were all in the backyard playing catch. When I drove back up to the house, I see the 3 boys out front, one with the garden hose, another with a machete (it's very dull, never been sharpened) and the third with a bow and arrow. They found the snake in the backyard then chased him to the front with the hose and cornered him and were aiming in on the poor thing. I chased the boys away, got my neighbor and she came over and caught the snake and moved him to a field away from the house...always something exciting going on here,lol
