Gopher Story

Filed under: Nature,Travel — Connor @ 7:20 am

We set a gopher trap the night before last night and early yesterday morning I got up, got dressed, and went outside to check the gopher trap. AND we caught a gopher. I looked both ways before I went across the road and then I went and told grandpa that we got a gopher and I asked if I could pull the trap up and he said yes. I said, “I’ll just leave it in the trap until you do something with it.” He said he would come over with me right now. So grandpa took the gopher out of the trap and I saved it until Grams and Rowan got up and saw it. Grams took a picture of it.

It was a pocket gopher. It is called a pocket gopher because it has pockets on the side of its mouth and it gets dirt in its pokcetsgopher and then comes up and shoots it out.

I was riding Inky and Barney yesterday. It was fun. Barney wasn’t bucky except for two times. Next year if they still have Inky and Barney, they will put a saddle and bridle on them and they will give me some training and then I will be on my own.barneyconnorinkyconnor

The wild food day

Filed under: Uncategorized — Connor @ 7:53 am

After we were fishing at CJ Strike in Idaho, we were picking currants and the mosquitoes were attacking us so we didn’t stay there for very long. We put the currants in pancakes and they were delicious. I also got to flip my own egg and take it out. The egg was from the place where we saw the chickens. It was from one of the chickens. pancakeconnorfryingegg1
