(Warning: not a post for the squeamish)
Tijmen killed a snake last week. Normally, we don't kill snakes that are not venomous. However, this one was very near our turkey house and so we thought it would be a good idea to get rid of him. Tijmen decided to skin the snake. We kept the snake meat and he'll keep the snake skin. (I have no idea what we'll do with the meat, but it's in our freezer anyways.)
It's funny, my kids aren't even fazed by this stuff. Not even slightly. The farm and the circle of life has become very normal to them.
