It was a sunny afternoon.
We checked on the heifers.
They were happily munching on green grass.
We walked down the ditch to change the irrigation.
The water was flowing nicely.
Say hello to my little friend.
Have you ever seen a snake swim through the water? It totally creeps me out! The first time I watched Lonesome Dove and saw the swarm of water moccasins float down the river and bite that young cowboy who was crossing on his horse, I cried. Now it's all I can think about when I see snakes swimming.
When the irrigation water rushes through the ditch in the pasture, it temporarily displaces the snakes from their homes in the pipes. I saw two snakes this time. Two snakes is two too many!!!
I quit. Snake wrangling is not in my job description. I'm grossly underpaid for the hazards I endure.
Just kidding. I kind of like these little surprises. They keep life interesting. Besides...."Danger" is my middle name. ;)
