    It's down another 10 degrees at 32. Wind has backed off some, but not a whole lot. wind chill is already low 20s. Not bothering Mel though. He has his arctic fur on and just lays down, closes his eyes and dreams... Well I know he knows where the shelter is, and can and will use it. Bully for...

    And for update, I am still in pain, but it is being managed and I CAN function, just not like a healthy 30 year old... o_O I have a very high pain threshold. It takes a lot for me to cry uncle. But when I do, it's really a cry... I can walk, but slowly and gingerly. I can use my hands and...

    So I had thawed out one of those small circular, reusable, ~16 oz containers of chili several days ago. It's been sitting in the fridge as I have had zero desire to eat. Normally I'd scarf down the whole thing at a sitting. Just heated it up with some fresh diced onion and a little mixed...

    Come to think of it GB, how are you doing on your migration westward plans? I know it's something you're really looking forward to and you might as well get on it. You ain't gettin' any younger either.

    First, thanks all for the well wishes, ideas/suggestions, sympathy, empathy, and potential offers of manual labor help. None of what I'm dealing with presently existed when I bought this place. It has been building ever since. And it seems to be on a progressive path. This is the reason that I...

    OK... been sitting here for 2 hours. Took 1 oxycodone, 2 aleve, and 1 of the Arthritis pain killer NSAIDs I have just before I sat down. Still sore, but pain has backed off, and I'm about to check out of here. Gotta call my hay guy about tomorrow and hope he has something to offer me. Thanks...

    Great Pyrenees rough with sheep

    Also, in my very limited experience, they aren't past their adolescent years till 24-36 months of age... They mature much slower than a pet, because they have to learn to do so much more than a pet.

    CL In Goats

    You really need to have the animal tested to be sure before you can make any realistic plans. You can draw blood from each and have everything tested all at once; CL, CAE, Johnes and the predominant ones.

    Limping goat?

    Goats are notorious for twisting joints... I'd not get overly concerned if you've checked her & there's no obvious damage or "heat" in the area in question... Heat would indicate damage or an infection.

    Copper bolus question

    It's going to take a month or more for any visible/appreciable change to be noticed. I have found that if I use a little peanut butter in the plunger then stick the bolus into that, when I place the bolus business end all the way to the back of the throat, they really have no choice but to...

    Farmerjan's journal - Weather

    I don't have a problem with eminent domain when it is done fairly and to the public's benefit, not an individual. I HAVE see it abused... badly. Glad your son has passed through that little fire. Hope the neighbor smartens up, cuts her losses and just moves on.
