Rattle of a Dead Rattlesnake

Posted by Timm

Unfortunately I had to kill a rattlesnake yesterday.  This video shows the snake’s body amazingly moving still 15 minutes after it lost its head.  In the video I pick up the rattle and give it a good shake to produce the rattlesnake’s trademark warning sound.

The chickens were quite interested in the dead snake, but seemingly oblivious to the live snake when it was stalking them.  The chickens oddly spun and shook their heads as they cautiously circled the dead snake.

Theresa Practices Killing Zombies

She’s a crack shot and went 5-for-5.  We decided to kill our old water heater here at Little Wolf… that’ll teach it not to work!

Fawn Over Me

Posted by Timm

8We had the pleasant surprise of finding the cutest small fawn in the field below Jimmy Pond.

 

Actually, it was our dog Darby who found the fawn.  Darby was barking in the brush with that “Come check it out, I’ve got something trapped” bark.  When we arrived, Darby was nose-to-nose with the fawn, which was about the same size as Darby but still quite clumsy on its feet.
