    High protein isn't good for alpacas either.

    Ramik - it is an anticoagulant I kept putting out more as the bait site was emptied until I didn't see any more rats. Found a whole stash months later so don't put out much. I figure since Jan doesn't have any pets at the moment, she could use it in the house. I used it in the barn but put it...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Given you said your landlord wants you out in a week, period, I think you have 2 options. You move all your stuff to a self storage place and move into a hotel or the people you bought the house from do. Doesn't sound like your landlord will be as kind as you have been. Certainly the sellers...

    Yesterday morning DD2 was eating breakfast and I heard DAD!!! Being indisposed at the time I ignored her. Soon after she was scolding her cat and I heard the front door open. Apparently Christofur was playing with a mouse. Good cat! Decreasing the mouse population in the house. DD finished the...

    When we bought this place there was a couple renting the lower part of the barn for 2 horses and a pony. The pony was a real drama queen. One of the horses was a thoroughbred she had bought from someone who said they couldn't get weight on him. She showed me a picture, nearly a bag of bones...

    If I had that I'd have nearly 2 dozen chickens looking in the window begging for food all day long!!! I do open the kitchen window to toss out trash and recycles, the bins are just below in the enclosed porch, very convenient :D

    Fencing ideas for sheep?

    Agreed. I learned the hard way that a fox can get through a 6" hole ... and drag an adult large fowl hen back through

    Plus it probably ate a lot more than an "average" horse without the thoroughbred blood

    DD1 picked that color for her room 25 years ago. Looked ok on the chip. Didn't get a whole lot on the wall before it showed its true colors. Went back and chose a lighter shade (whether she wanted to or not). Personal opinion for this instance (not asked for): Not without checking with the...

    I don't think the federal "gas tax holiday" thing ever got traction. Do you suppose there is a reason the stocking rate there is calculated as "many acres per animal unit" rather than the other way around? ;) Keep putting houses on that and after a while nothing will come out of their taps...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Don't hold your breath on it being all better for either of those. But you'll get sympathy points showing the animals with a boot or on a crutch ;)

    So it sprays chlorinated water on the grass? Do things not perk well there? I like passive, not much maintenance and no mechnicals to break.
