    Loafing Shed Refurbish

    Need to rework the pens in the shed. The aisle is too narrow, walls too tall, and fence gaps too big. I'm not strong enough to lift a full 5gal pail of water over a 48" fence easily. If I pour thru the fence water goes everywhere. The current gates on small pen are 3 handed operation. I'm...

    The hard gums can feel like they are using a vise. Not sure what's in bag balm. I used plain lanolin then I washed with soap and water before feeding. Nobody likes it if the straw tastes funny. I lived in SE corner of Iowa for 4years. I worked in Keokuk. I miss the rolling hills.
