    Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) & Herding / Working Dog Breeds Listing

    Is there a list, or even an existence, of LGDs that can withstand the heat? Every LGD I seem to find has a very thick coat and many pet websites have a warning that they can overheat and to keep them cool with the AC running when it's hot out. I know that they can withstand seasonal changes but...

    LGD space?

    By the way, what is your website? I know that you had a website for dogs, goats and chickens that you had bred? Would love to know more about it. I can't seem to find it tho. :/

    Buffalo/Yaks and Goats

    Yeah, that's true. I only asked this because I know sheep can pass some sort of disease (I can't remember it for the life of me) that can easily kill a group of American Bison. That's why I was wondering. Would goats or water buffalo/yaks have diseases that they could spread to each other? I...

    Buffalo/Yaks and Goats

    Yeah, that's true. They are a bit hairy, aren't they? :P Yay! They share the same parasites, correct? :fl

    Buffalo/Yaks and Goats

    I'm interested in raising buffalo/yaks if I do manage to get enough land one day. My heart is set on at least a pair of goats, however. I've also heard of water buffalo and yaks being a dream! I'm still considering which to choose if they're okay with goats. Seriously, I need goats in meh life...

    anyone else having a fly proplem

    Muscovy ducks are good. They probably won't bond, and as long as he's full, probably won't go after them. :)

    LGD space?

    That makes sense. But I sure do wish people got their facts before jumping on any big dog as an LGD. It'd make life so much easier to navigate through... Really? I've read multiple forums (before coming here) that it's best not to interact with them too much. That they can bond with you, but...

    LGD space?

    But just reading your signature, I'm sure that they're too busy sniffing up all your animals! WOW! Beehive? I'm too much of a chicken to even harvest meh own honeh. :tongue But thanks for your input, though. I'll definitely be considering it. :)

    anyone else having a fly proplem

    So sorry I didn't respond sooner. I had no idea you replied until now! Continuing on~ They are fast producers, but I'd suggest for 60 acres, maybe start out with more than that. If you don't want them overrunning the place, maybe... Perhaps 5? Just to get a good feel of them. The ratio should...

    Rabbit still pulling fur 24 hrs after birth

    I've heard that a female can easily become pregnant twice at the same time. If you let her mate multiple times, she may be carrying two litters within her. So she already gave birth to one, and she could be preparing for the next one. I'd keep an eye on her to make sure everything is alright. I...

    LGD space?

    I see... *nod* Because when i was researching LGDs, I checked out some forums and some people suggested Giant Schnauzer, so I figured I might have already had some experience to a certain degree. Guess not. :P And by property all around dog, you mean the whole land of my house, I presume...

    LGD space?

    A Komondor is what I'm looking for since they seem to fit my needs and personality wise. I've had some experience as I talked to some breeders and such. They're also the only breed, other than the Tibetan Mastiff, that I've been able to work with physically. Both breeds I've never owned before...

    LGD space?

    I've done some research on LGDs. I'll be moving somewhere with an acre or two and I've heard that's too small for an actual LGD? I'm thinking about raising a Komondor, if that matters much. He'd be protecting poultry and rabbits, very possible goats or horses (I'm still considering the space I...

    anyone else having a fly proplem

    Have you guys tried Muscovy ducks? I know some people that use them for bug control. They work WONDERS! Literally, flies are just gone. (I've seen one swallow a small snake before...gross, but exciting!) You can have a few shallow pans for them since they do need water. They're hard to find in...

    Goat bedding?

    I know this is quite an old thread, but do you guys just put sand over the floor (either wooden or dirt)? It's warm all year around so I don't worry about them getting cold...

    A Noobie :)

    *nod* I see... I would most likely have a large area where they would forage for. Sprinkle seeds and wait for it to grow a foot tall and let them graze on that. I was also thinking of planting some bushes and having them eat that with some trees to nibble on. Is that okay? I've heard some say...
