  1. Snaky updates! Retaining sperm after 2yrs(!), babies, new additions, adoptions!

    Wow, it has been busy around here, in a good way. :) As I've settled (well, am settling) into a medically retired life, the snake collection and breeding program has gradually grown and expanded....
  2. Love my horses...love my snakes. My wonderfully odd new life as equestrian retiree

    When my health hit the fan (well, hit the wall, THEN the fan) a couple of years ago, I found the barn increasingly difficult to enjoy the way I once did. It was, and is, maddeningly frustrating not...

    Update! Eggs are arriving! ...kinda.

    As she was first to be clearly gravid, it's no surprise Zuri was first to lay her eggs. But disappointingly, it's looking like only 3 of the 15 laid were...
  4. Oh he is CUTE! Congratulations! Look forward to...

    Oh he is CUTE! Congratulations! Look forward to seeing pics of him grow. :)

    Loaded up as we are with 20 (!) snakes and the frog, I'm still tempted by a beardie...butttttt for now, I shall enjoy...
  5. It's as much a matter of size and health as age,...

    It's as much a matter of size and health as age, at least with this species. At 18mos and assuming you're feeding every 7-14 days or so, Mushroom is probably about 100-150g+ and definitely big enough...
  6. WELL...hmm. Zuri was first to shed back in...

    WELL...hmm.

    Zuri was first to shed back in late January/early February, so I went ahead and put Rama in with her for breeding. It was quite early in the season (last three years, my girls have all...
  7. :yes: :D The girls had their first turnout...

    :yes: :D

    The girls had their first turnout together in the biggest arena yesterday. They were almost entirely well-behaved, minus a brief moment where Firefly backed her butt up to Mariah...
  8. I took Mariah out for her first ride with me...

    I took Mariah out for her first ride with me today! Tacking up was pretty much a snorefest for her. ;) I also fitted her in the *nice* brand new bridle her previous owner sent with her (I adjust the...
  9. Our boys are 3/4 mini-Nubian, 1/4 full size...

    Our boys are 3/4 mini-Nubian, 1/4 full size Nubian (which is a TALL goat, so even being 3/4 minis, they aren't teeny like a pygmy or Nigerian dwarf)...and they're awesome. :) We've had no problem...
  10. They're here!...

    They're here!

    Anaconda-pattern 100% het axanthic, albino (snow) female
    100% het lavender, toffeebelly female
    100% het lavender, toffeebelly male

    100% het lavender male ("Rufus")

    100% het...

    For snakes, there is definitely an element of krazy kolor, at least at first when the color morphs are new. (That's where prices get INSANE. A palmetto corn snake runs $7000 for a breeding-size...
  12. More pics? Me? Well, okay, I guess. :lol: Also...

    More pics? Me? Well, okay, I guess. :lol:

    Also taken this afternoon, here's Oldest showing one reason why goats are just perfect for little boys. Crawl on them, roughhouse, push them,...

    :) Thanks, everyone. We are really having a blast.

    Today was the first time we let Mariah out to graze in our daily after-school routine. Typically, I pick up the boys from school and we head...
  14. Some of the names of the color morphs crack me...

    Some of the names of the color morphs crack me up. A axanthic (same as an anerythyristic in corns--it's where all color has been removed but melanin, creating a black and white snake) crossed with a...
  15. Looky what I got--from a fellow COTHer, no less! (Yup...new horsey!)

    Eeeee! That's right, you guys are the ULTIMATE enablers. I came here a while ago asking about local horse rescues, and a COTHer reached out to me in a PM to offer this girl to our family. A series of...
  16. Corn snake breeding 2016! Update in #11: Eggs are arriving!

    'Tis the season! And believe me, my males are making it VERY clear 'tis the season...food is NOT a priority and they've all quit bothering with that whole eating nonsense. Psh, food, whatever...where...
  17. This snake enthusiast has gone completely HOG wild!

    Meet Bertha. She is the first of FOUR (yup, 4!) new Western hognose snakes we're getting in the next week. Thanks to wee Sir Buford Bacon purchased last month, I'm hooked. Like...eeeeee! :D

    Now,...
  18. I have an appointment to meet the trainer and...

    I have an appointment to meet the trainer and potential matching adoptables at Red Bucket tomorrow morning. :D
  19. Thank you IdahoRider. :) I got a call from a...

    Thank you IdahoRider. :)

    I got a call from a rep from RBER yesterday--she was completing the next step in the adoption and matching process. First is that email I received, second is this personal...

    Alas, we didn't find a match. Several that were in the right direction and one we even test rode, but he proved one *I* could ride but I wouldn't trust putting my kids on except for leadline. I'd...

    :lol: :lol:
    Firefly says, "She talking about me, isn't she?" ;)

    There are no guarantees and no plans...we're just going to look. :) It helps that the founder of Hicaliber (who is the one meeting us today) had a TBI years ago that turned her life upside-down and...
  23. Our adoption application to Hicaliber has been...

    Our adoption application to Hicaliber has been approved and we're scheduled to visit on Sunday. :) Leaving the trailer at home for this visit...

    I've sent off an email to Hicaliber and submitted an application to Red Bucket Equine. Now I wait to hear back from them. :::raps fingers on table impatiently:::

    Meanwhile, I'm perusing the local...

    Yes, you did, and I thank you for your honesty about him; there are many who would stretch the truth (or omit it) in attempts to just get rid of a horse. He's absolutely adorable and I wish he were a...
