This morning as we went out with the dogs we had six deer of numerous sizes in our field. It took me so long to realize what they were that I didn’t get a photo of them.
Then like ten minutes later we had two wild turkeys out in our front area with the resident goose. I only got the one photo of the one going away (so funny they like met and then separated off to do different business I guess one going toward the neighbors land the other toward where the horses are next door). Busy turkeys I guess, places to go people to see?
Then yesterday I was sitting at my work desk and saw two things go slithering by my window. And the person I used to be would have gone and stood on the washing machine until my husband came home and I would have been screaming. This new person who is on that snake identification page on Facebook, she saw them fly by and thought immediately: Those are Racers I need to go get photos. And outside I went. WHO AM I? HOW did this happen? Now I am never going to hold a snake if I can help it but I am less freaked out by them (AS LONG AS THEY STAY OUTSIDE THE HOUSE OKAY??). But I got some cool photos!
I posted the photos on the snake id page and in like five seconds I got the confirmation that I guessed right! Black Masked Racers (one is getting ready to shed, see his blue eyes?). So cool. They never even budged while I took a million photos. These guys can even kill other snakes so they are welcome to live here. Go find a copperhead or two guys! Thanks! (Objects appear closer than I actually was to them thank you iPhone for having a zoom feature!)
Now we have the turtle that lives under the stairs to the deck on the apartment. Mark saw him the other day and told me about him and I figured he didn’t know what he was seeing (Sorry Mark for not believing you!). But yep there he was today in the flower bed so I got a zillion shots of him too. What a beauty.
Wildlife is plentiful here, you never know what you are going to see. It is really interesting to see all the wildlife. HOWEVER we found out that my truck fuel line was chewed. UGH So the warranty will not cover it but luckily it was not too expensive a fix and Edward should be done today or tomorrow! YAY! But now how to keep things from CHEWING MY FUEL LINE?? (I am seriously thinking it happened parking three full days at the airport this week. I parked below ground which I never do and it was gross there. I wonder about rats there?) UGH! But the truck will be back soon and sparkling in the sunshine again! 🙂
Now onto a Remus recap. He is doing great (you guys tired of hearing that yet)? I talked to ET yesterday AND Emily was nice enough to get videos last night. I am so lucky to have found Emily and that she was nice enough to hook me up with ET. It is a great place for Remus I just wish it was closer. Emily had a lesson herself but she knew I would be hungry for videos of my pony and she delivered (without me even asking!) Thanks Emily!
Hopefully Remus will get to do some cross country schooling soon and he may (MAY) even be entered into a show while there to get some miles under his belt. Stay tuned. But now for cutest videos of the cutest fat buckskin ever!! Enjoy! How adorable is he?? I may be biased but still! Happy Wednesday all!
