When a hand­ful of goats ran loose to­ward a nearby canyon one April morn­ing, Gad­dis sent a bor­der col­lie out to herd them. The dog re­turned with a po­ten­tially deadly rat­tlesnake bite. Gad­dis had to act fast, mak­ing an emer­gency call to the coun­try vet. “This time of year, we’re al­ways wear­ing our snake boots and car­ry­ing a pis­tol,” she says. “You can chop off their heads with a gar­den hoe, but I pre­fer a pis­tol.”
