Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Well, maybe no snails, but fair warning, there will be a snake. 
 The goats were hanging around the barn the other day and with the rain, a couple of the kids decided to perch on a ledge under an overhang.  I thought it made for a nice picture.
 And mushrooms are popping up everywhere with all this rain.  Three inches so far.
 Then one day J noticed the hay ring in the bull lot didn't look exactly right. 
 I'm sure I have said it before, but J's quote about bulls is, "whatever they don't tear up they s#%^ on."
 So he rounded up some new bolts, got the tractor, pulled it up out of the muck, and fastened it back together.
 It is more of a hay tear drop now instead of a hay ring, but it will work.
 Then when J got a bale of hay to put in it, a snake dropped out while he was taking the net wrap off.
 I looked it up when I got back to the house and it was a garter snake. 
 Notice I said was; J doesn't care much for snakes.
And there you have a puppy dog tail.

You really pulled out the cute stops for the "bookends" to your post. J is always having to deal with something that needs to be fixed. Really cool mushrooms. You didn't seem to mind getting close to that snake - yikes.

It's good you warned about that snake...harmless or not, I am NOT a fan. At. All. On another note...our hay rings aren't round anymore either! ;)
