    handsome new ram mike. i crossed to the dark side this year and got a 2 year old katahdin/dorper ram. he has several really nice daughters that his previous owner is keeping so he was looking for a new home. he found one here, at least for a while.

    Sentry, Baymule’s Livestock Guard Dog

    what a beautiful boy baymule. i think by the look in sentrys eyes as he's leaning on you that he doesn't just want puppy love, he is laying claim to you. that look says my mom, back off. he's going to make you a great dog.

    Baymule's 2020 Feeder Pigs!

    congrats on the new porkeys. I looked for a long time for a couple of feeder pigs but was not willing to drive 2+ hours and pay $100 for each of them which is where the little toy pigs come in. my 3 boys went ape shift when they first heard one of the little guys squeal but after an hour or so...

    Polled or not Polled

    well willie certainly is a cutie. if you bought him weeks ago he should already have horns sticking thru his hair that you can see. if he is several weeks old you may have lucked out and he's polled too. i'd take him back to the breeder and have her look at him for you. if worse comes to...

    I've gone and done it. now that I've go 'em what do I feed 'em??

    ok, so I was wrong about getting pictures of the new boys. sorry @Baymule its been a crazy weekend and I haven't been able to feed until dark:30 for the past 2 days. pete and repeat are both doing really well. its just hard to take pictures of black pigs in the dark, especially since they...

    Are your black sheep black?

    thanks for the article, interesting. the Dale Bumpers Small Animal research center is not far from me. they do a lot of different studies and have a fairly large katahdin herd. check out their web site to look at a lot of their info. I am blessed to have 60 acres that my animals free range...

    I've gone and done it. now that I've go 'em what do I feed 'em??

    @Baymule these guys are so ugly that they are cute. and if you read carefully you will see that they are castrated males so no surprise babies unlike that last large black glit that I got who presented me with a bunch of unwanted piglets. this is all @frustratedearthmother fault. she is the...

    Are your black sheep black?

    Bee I've been doing this for years. I've had goats for almost 50 years and sheep for 10+. they all run in the same pasture and use the same barn so its almost impossible to separate what they eat and the minerals they share. I think its important to know the mineral deficiencies in your area...

    I've gone and done it. now that I've go 'em what do I feed 'em??

    day before yesterday I lost my mind and bought 2 agh/kunekune cross barrows and brought the little darlings home to plow my garden spot for me before they make pork chops and lard. the folks I got them from said they were feeding them sweet feed which doesn't sound like a great idea to me. I...
