Just a few pictures from the farm. The first two are me trying to get pics of my flock of hummers. Little buggers are like most critters, all over the place being cute and amazing, when you get the camera out, no where to be found. If you click on the pics, should be able to see better.

Damn it I posted another pic twice.
Oh well, just wanted to show pics of my fierce bad hunting dogs, silly critters.
The pic of the device on the hood of the truck is my custom made Snake Dispatch Tool. My dad made this for me after an encounter I had with a Copperhead. At the time, I only had a rather short pair of hedge clippers as a weapon. The snake was in my garage and my dogs were right there, so I grabbed what I had available and whacked the shit out of it's head. Anywhoo, dad decided I needed something more effective, so he made this for me. It has already come in handy when I had to dispatch a half dead groundhog that Gracie found, and last night when I found a Black Snake sitting on top of one of my feed cans, I was able to ask it to leave, in a rather inpolite kind of way. I keep it hooked onto the back of Dolly with a bungy cord.
Oops, didn't mean to post that pic twice. Anyway, that is Dolly the golf cart, she is my most favorite barn helper. The amount of time she saves me is inmeasurable. Notice the "off-road tires on the back," they have come in handy many times.
Just a couple of pics of the last 4 Pacas we brought over. The white one is Portfolio, he is actually very well bred and a great prospect. He is unproven at this point. The other ones are Dakota, Boots and Honey (not pictured). Those three aren't exactly breeding quality so we are checking into gelding them or finding them pet homes.
Just some random pictures today. The cat is Casper-Batman, I think he is actually a mini black panther. He is the world's best barn cat. He is people friendly but will kill whatever comes along. He is not afraid of anything, including large cat-hating dogs. His idea of grooming himself is to roll around on the rock driveway. Not really too effective. He was dumped on our old property about 6 years ago. He had tags on and when we called, the people said they didn't want him. Sad!
