Never seen so many snakes. We find these 5-6 footers every day. They should be fixing our rabbit problems but there are plenty of those too.

CEA negative

Good news on our boy Jones! His blood test came back clear for CEA so he (and his potential offspring) will never suffer from collie eye anomaly which is a genetic disease that causes blindness and deafness in collie breeds.

One of Tiffany's duties this week was to research and implement a manifold for our new sprinkler system in the roundabout. These are the kinds of things our capable interns get to learn here at VR.

We went to Yosemite for two days and came home to an overdose of baby goats. Two does gave us a total of 3 girls and one boy. Thanks to Tiffany for taking care of things while we saw the sites. #nigeriandwarf #youvegottobekidding
