Double Take

Yesterday morning when we came home from an appointment DD2 noticed this rather large snake on the ground next to the carport! He was about 4 feet long. Wow!! Very cool! We took some pictures and went inside to do research to try to figure out what kind of snake it was. I think it was a black rat snake. And considering the large number of rodents living in our horse barn - that is a very good type for us to have! Plus they aren't venomous, even though DH assures me they will still bite.
When I went outside yesterday evening to feed the horse I was initially distracted by the large cockroach on the wall. Ew! I HATE those things!! So, I get the horse his treat and grain, staying as far away as possible. As I'm standing there trying to pet Justy's head I catch sight of something out of the corner of my eye. A snake is in the rafters a couple feet over my head! I could almost reach out and touch him! Yeah! He made it to the horse barn where he is needed desperately! Happy hunting little buddy!!
