Snails love our shovel handle – who knew?

The shovel had been laying up against the arena fence for a few days this past, wet week, making it irresistible to the local snails. There were more snails than this photo shows but you get the idea – I had to set them free before I could continue on with the chores. Not sure what was so darned attractive about a shovel handle, but there you have it.
