    Why Don't My Pictures Show Up On Old Threads?

    @Support or @Nifty I wanted to send a link to my old thread I Hate Green Briars to a friend. But on Page 1, most of the pictures are replaced by a red X. When I clicked on edit, the pictures show up, but I can't save them. Here is the link...

    Paris is Gone

    It's been a long relationship with a smack dab crazy dog. Anybody that reads my posts knows about Paris, a Great Pyrenees. Paris was a free throw away dog, a chicken killer. While I don't recommend taking on a problem dog as your very first LGD, it worked out, finally, for us. Her story begins...

    My BJ, My Husband has Died

    BJ passed away September 20 with Covid Pneumonia. We both were sick, but he got worse and I took him to the hospital. He rallied and I thought I would be bringing him home, but that was not to be. The hospital called me that morning to tell me that they were putting him on a ventilator. BJ could...

    We got home a little while ago with two 3 1/2 month old registered ewes. We bought them from Howard and Susian Covington in Livingston. I was so excited I couldn’t sleep last night. Dessa

    Baymule’s 2021 Feeder Pigs!

    We got 3 pigs today. Like last year, feeder pigs are scarce and high priced. 8 week old weaned piglets are going from $100 to $200 each. Tons of little miniature pigs, what am I going to do with that? Make a pig nugget and French fries? Anyway, we went to go buy 3 approximately 100 pounders for...

    Keep or Sell? Names?

    Y’all take a look at this. My sister gave me a picture for Christmas. I looked at it and said, “you are not going to believe this, but I have a ewe lamb with those same markings!” I’ve been considering this ewe lamb, she is growing good, looks good, but comes from a wormy momma. Wormy mamma is...

    The Truck is Protected

    Our LGDs are marvelous animals, going above and beyond what we expect from them. Trip guards the sheep from predators, neighbors, garbage trucks and the like. He gallops down the driveway and clears the fence in a single bound into pasture 1 to run to the front fence to bark ferociously. He...

    Giant Pink Banana Squash

    I planted Giant Pink Banana Squash out of curiosity. I wanted to make pies and have something for sheep treats. I had 3 plants. They sprawled out, went over the fence and up a tree. I picked 6 squash, not bad. I made pie and pumpkin bread, delicious! After a hot dry summer, we finally got rain...

    Baymule’s 2021 Lambing

    Ok, it started a little early, there will be another one, but the rest will be in February 2021. I had Ringo with 2 ewes to sell as bred ewes. The buyer lost his job due to Covid and oil patch layoffs. He found another job, but not what he was making. House note, car notes, wife and 3 kids...

    October has started with more than the usual amount of crazy that goes on in our lives. BJ is scheduled for hip replacement October 14 and is counting down.

    Shucking Corn With Ringo

    Yesterday I picked corn, got 53 ears. I dropped the tailgate on BJs truck, had a cleaver, 2 knives and a small board. I chop both ends with the cleaver and pull off the shucks. I had a plastic tote to drop the shucks in, there were some very over ripe pears in the bottom. I hadn’t done too much...

    Sheba-A Marvelous Gift

    I was contacted by a person wishing to remain anonymous, with an offer of an Anatolian puppy. As I read the generous offer to BJ, we both burst into tears. Because of Sentry’s hip dysplasia and surgery and our decision not to put him through another surgery, this person felt bad for us. Needless...

    Grass Tetany in Sheep

    Lady Baa Baa has been feeling “off”. I could see that she didn’t feel good. I figured she was hitting the uncomfortable stage of pregnancy and gave her tummy rubs. She laid down and I could see in her eyes that she wasn’t her usual self. She was eating the pellet Feed, hay and grazing in the...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    This Coronavirus has people scared, buying up all the toilet paper and hand sanitizer in sight. Was just wondering how this is affecting the herd? Is anybody stocking up for a lockdown? If you are, what are you doing? We pretty much stay stocked up, but could probably get a few more bags of dog...

    Femoral Head Ostectomy and Hip Dysplasia in Sentry

    Hip Dysplasia. Words and diagnosis that strike fear and grief in any dog owner. That's the words we got February 12, 2020. Our vet said he has never seen hips so bad in a dog so young and called him a train wreck. We sure started out in a different place when we got Sentry. So full of...

    Here we go! Got two guilts today, Hampshire and Yorkshire cross. I’ve been looking, people sure are proud of their pigs this year. Finally found these an hour and half away and we went and got them. Sentry is in a pasture, not against the new Pigs, but he knew he didn’t like them. He barked...
