Re: [RC] Snakes - Born Country

Snake story - My husband, son and I were riding through a winding, narrow trail in a fairly thick woods. ?My son and I were a bit ahead of my husband, when he called to us to come back. ?Turning and riding back, we were startled to see a medium-size rattlesnake coiled next to the trail. ?Our horses' hooves had come within inches of the snake. ?Why the snake didn't pay attention to us, I don't know. ?It was definitely alive, though.

I've ridden in Florida, Georgia and Alabama for the past 30 years. ?In all that time, I've seen 3 (maybe 4) rattlesnakes. ?None of them were aggressive; maybe they had just eaten or were just plain lazy, but I'm sure glad they decided to be passive on those particular days.
