I have to admit tor this animal loving poet ttie idea ot snake handling makes my hands shake.  Saturday, July 16, was the 2nd Annual Snake Celebration at our very own World Famous Snake and Animal Farm.  The Snake Farm's Promotional Director Jarrod Forthman told me "Snakes are my favorite animal of all, our goal to educate people that snakes do much more good than harm"  Jar rod's dimpled enitvusiasm IS contagious, as he educated the eager crowd while handling one of his slithery friends.  1 look around at the eager visitors, and thought, WOW, this place IS a Zoo, quite literally for this Snake Day Celebration weekend!  Clear blue eyes and long red hair pulled back in a braid, Manager Robin McKeown exuded a Mother Nature air. Robin obviously loves her career and snakes are her favorite animal of all, this Conneticut to Texas transplant puts the animals first for the very best of care.  Nurse Naney (Tve always wanted to say that) Nolan brought hei adorable kid trio lor a fun Saturday outing. Each one of Nancy's kids were elaborately face painted by Usa Lou, 7-year-old Matthew Nolan opted for the Spider Man look a Super Hero who attends Walnuv Springs. 9'year-old Summer Nolan has big plans for her life, face theme, a pretty yet mangy pirate.  County Line Elementary is lucky to have Summer, her future plans to be a Doctor, what kind? And I quote "I haven t thought that through yet".  10 year old Shelby Nolan  opted for the feminen pink glitter heart face, she will make a very lovely and care ing Vet.  T Bar M is the summer home for this Houston family, Dad Enricque, Mom Paola, 9-yedr-old Katia, Daniela, 10, and Anna, 6 Daniela thinks the monkeys  are funny being silly, Katia loves the snakes, Anna "the Zebra is so cute", the Animal Farm has something for everyone a real animal mix 6-year-old twins Julian and Sebastian Serrano were try mg to get to know the black and white Llama, I'll call him Ctieckers, Mom Rochelly Serrano, another Texas Transplant had a beautiful Puerto Fiican accent Sebastian's Snake Farm highlight "The snake with big ears" my quip "You mean the snake m the Hood!"(King Cobra), he had no clue what I meant.  This Mom looked way too beautiful to be out in the heat' Lisa Clifton's streaked blonde hair was pulled up into an ele gant casual up do Handsome Hubby Chris Clifton's daik goatee was threaded with gray, a new tiansplant to the area they brought then son Carter to enjoy the fabulous Snake Farm and Zoo Reptile Supervisor Robert Jackson gave me a brief history lesson on the Snake Farm, the Farm is over 40 years old!
