So of course they had to catch it....Yes we made sure it wasn't a poisonous snake Before anyone touched it!My brave children!! You wouldn't catch me doing that!! EVER!!I mean EVER!! I let them because they think the snakes are to cool! But they know what the poisonous ones look like and if they aren't sure they get me or their dad to see and make sure. If there is any doubt they don't touch it..
But this was a little Salt and Pepper king snake. Not a bad thing to have around. Of course he is probably long gone now due to the traumatizing afternoon!Lol
We had a little bit of a scare with Kara's rabbits yesterday too. Its been so cool lately that we haven't had to worry to much about them getting to hot. Well they got to hot yesterday. They were panting which that in itself is no biggie but one had wet around her mouth and they were not moving around much at all and were all stretched out..
So we put ice in their water bowls, put fresh ice bottles in and put a fan on them. Then Kara used wet rags to wipe their ears down. Its part of their cooling system as the blood is pumped through their ears it cools down. With in 30 minutes they were moving around and acting better.
So all is good with them. Shooo!
We are starting on the end of the year 4H project papers today.. SO they can get those done and turned in before my surgery. One less thing to worry about!
I hope everyone has a great day!!
