Wildlife on the Ranch (part II)

Here area few more of the metal sculptures.  (see prior blog for part I).

Hope everyone survived the Rattlessssssnake encounter.  Actually, I have spent a lot of time in wilderness and ranch areas in Southern Arizona and have only encountered a rattlesnake on two occasions...both of which when I was in a vehicle and Mr. Snake was crossing the road as fast as he could go.

We do have our working dogs (those who will be out in the fields) snakeproofed so they will avoid any snake.  That's a subject for another blog.


Cowboy, Cowgirl and Horse with a sign saying, "Welcome to the Ranch".

Family of Javelinas
                                                             
                                                                     Quail in a tree.
                     
                                                           Peacock with Yucca Stalk         

                                                   
"What's with the Peacock?" did you say?  Well, that's another tale for another blog.

  4. These are all so impressive! I love all of them and seeing these pics makes me miss the desert very much. I can tell all are sculptures except the rattlesnake--I'm assuming it is a sculpture, too. I encountered rattlesnakes quite frequently in the field while in CA & AZ.

  5. I love the Cowboy, Cowgirl, and Horse. Actually I love them all!!!

    I've had many encounters with pygmy rattlesnakes here. I'm not fond of snakes...but I worry more about my kids encountering them.
