    Cougar Attack!

    WOW Bay! I just found this thread! Good Boy Carson!!!! He’s a sweet dog, and we get along beautifully, but I wouldn’t want to challenge him in the dark. Ron was smart to give him a wide berth! I wasn’t aware we have cougars in the part of Texas. I know we have bobcats, cause I found a 3”...

    Here is the latest . I made the infinity chain and heart clasp. The wire is "rose gold". The crystals are champagne rondells.

    Awwww, thanks Animalmom. Yes, I am relieved that he is doing well too. :D I just recently placed an order on Artbeads. I don’t do that very often, because I never need $25 worth and don’t want to have to pay shipping. I tend to buy on eBay, as I can find reasonable prices and free shipping. :)...

    Exactly! :lol: I had one guy who wanted all three pregnant does, and the (registered) buck for $400 AND he wanted me to deliver them about 40 miles one way, ‘cause all he had was a car to transport them in. :gig:lol::gig

    Yes, I know our two girls are going to get lots of love. DH got some grain and let the two boys, they brought with them, feed Hope. She ate it up and I could tell they were going to be gentle with her. Hope got up on the fence and cuddled with me non-stop. It just made me totally melt. I almost...

    Wow! I just realized it's been almost 2 weeks since you posted this, Mini. Sorry it took so long for me to get back here to respond. We finally sold 2 of our goats, Angelica and Hope, to a family of 8. They have FIVE adopted children and one older son, of their own. They raise cattle, and...

    Yes, I miss Joe too. Every once in a while I wish I could give him a call. I got his LaMancha, April. She is a cross between lamantia and Nubian. She is a big, powerful goat, and my biggest challenge when it comes to doing maintenance. We did copper bolus, and hoof trimming, the other day. She...

    Thanks for your words of support! Having animals has it own set of challenges. Then, you add to it health issues, and it becomes another ballgame! It sounds like you are keeping the lines of communication open with the kids, so that is good! You can only do one day at a time. :D

    Thanks Jan. For my husband’s sake we need to eliminate the work of the goats. Today we were talking about adding a few turkeys, to put in the freezer. It wouldn’t be any extra work, to put them with the chickens, and we would have organically raise turkey. :D

    The problem with that home colon test, is that a lot of people have bleeding hemorrhoids. Even a small amount of blood from the hemorrhoids, will show up as a false positive on a colon smear test for colon cancer. it’s not an exact science and causes a lot of people to stress over colon cancer...

    Growing flowers is part of my plan. :D I stopped in a flower shop, a block away from the Farmer’s Market, and was told she would pay a whopping $1.75/sunflower. :eek: That made me even more determined to grow and sell sunflowers and other flowers, as well as bouquets at the market. I don’t...

    Thanks for the suggestion, Jan. That’s not an option, for me though. I also test sensitive to lamb. :( I seem to have a lot of food allergies. It makes it really hard to eat anymore. :he

    Actually, They usually only bark when there is a threat. Although, they do seem to think the adjoining 65 acre hay field and the 1/2 mile road leading up to our property, belong to us, so when a truck drives up the road, they bark to warn it off. They also adore me and when I go out the back...

    Thank you, B&B! I have to admit, that I haven’t had time to catch up on your journey. I am so glad to learn, that at least for now, you have been able to postpone selling and moving. Although, I must say, I totally understand the problem of hour+ trips to doctor appointments. After listening to...

    @B&B Happy goats, I know you didn’t comment. But, I thought I would add that you helped me to make this decision. I haven’t been on BYH much lately, but I diid happen to check in when you posted about selling your goats and moving to a 55+ community, with your DH (and his issues) in mind. It...
