We’ve been having rain – LOTS of rain. It has knocked down the corn in our garden, it has washed one of my zucchini plants right off it’s roots — and, apparently, it has disoriented the wildlife on our farm.
We woke to finding this “creature” trying to get into the pasture with the goats and the horse – headed in the wrong direction from the stream. He was not happy when Chris came at him with a shovel to relocate him and latched on with the viciousness of a mouse trap.
Almost more than the shovel could bear, we got him turned around, gently set him in the creek pointed downstream and waved goodbye. It was either that – or the stock pot. And I don’t know how to make Snapper Soup.
