...then this would be our carbon footprint.

Another snake-bite preventative motion is to attach bells around an animal's neck. The loud clanging alerts snakes that this is a large animal not suitable for a meal and they slither back to protect themselves. I can't imagine the racket that would be heard if I attached bells to all 10 of the 4-legged creatures. I think instead I'll just be cautious (as I've done other years) to make sure the sheep are keeping up with the height of the grass and I scope out the yard before releasing the kids to play each morning.
As previously posted, Mona had babies which fell out of pen #1 because she had them outside of nestbox #2. We got them back into nestbox #2 which stayed inside pen #1. Eventually 2 of the 5 died but not by foul play, or at least not what we can tell.
