Fainting Goats

We had a strange message left on our phone.

A neighbor that we had not met, was driving past our home and saw some crazy skunk, spinning in circles.  He thought perhaps it had eaten the head of the rattle snake that was dead a little further down the road and that is had bitten the skunk..

He did not know if it was dangerous, or was rabid..
He did't leave a phone number, so we could not call him back.. We went out side with a flash light and gun, just in case but could not find anything. In the country we don't have street lights and it is very dark!

 We drove down the road and our neighbors were home, we had a lovely chat and got a better explanation of the Skunk. Thankfully, we did not find it and our llamas are all fine.

They have some Fainting Goats,  Burro's and a variety of chickens, ducks etc.
It had been awhile since we have been down the road..and we are delighted to see this fun menagerie. 

Living in the country does have it's challenges.. we also heard that someone had gone on private property up the road, shot out the windows in a trailer that was used when the cows are in the field. Also shot one cow in the foot and killed a pregnant cow..

Country life is not all veggies, and happy animals.It can be a challenge.

  1. What a delightful blog. Reminds me of the deer family nesting under our patio deck for several weeks, the 30+ turkey buzzards sunning on the branches of a dead tree in our yard, the bats and rats that take up residents in our attic from time to time and the scorpions that come up from under somewhere to spend the night in our house. I love living in the foothills of Yosemite and being your friend and neighbor a couple miles away from you.
