Wildlife on the Ranch

I head to my friend's small ranch almost every Wednesday morning for Sheep Herding practice with my Sheltie, Rooster.  I thought you might like to see some of the "Wildlife" to be found there.  It's easy to get pictures of them as they tend to stay in one place.    There's a jackrabbit (huge, a turkey buzzard, mule (must be wild), armadillo, ground squirrel.......and....gasp.....


And, of course.....
Rattlessssssssssnake!

  4. eeeeep.... a snake! Where is your ranch? Are you in New Mexico or am I thinking of someone else? Well I'm jealous, where ever you are lol! It looks toasty warm in those pictures. I keep telling the fam that we are going to start wintering in Arizona in 5 years... they aren't thrilled. This week they brought up snakes as a way to try to deter me. pffft... not gonna work.
