    Coffee anyone ?

    :D Definitely NOT looking for a pal. And I, naturally, defer to your expertise on his conformation. My inexperienced self just thought he was beautiful. And I am totally able to admire a thing of beauty without the desire to acquire. Guess I'm just a sucker for the dappled body with the blonde...

    @Mini Horses . I'm not a horse person. Big OR little. But I saw this local and I thought of you. Horse person or not, I can appreciate this. Is $850 reasonable?

    Waterer. I bought a complete kit on Amazon. 20 BRASS nipples with tees, etc, plus connector for the water source (5 gal bucket in my case) plus 100 ft of black hose. I had to get the bucket and a garden hose to get to the bucket. Otherwise. One shot, one kill. $55 +free shipping. From...

    @Larsen Poultry Ranch and @Duckfarmerpa1 Thanks for the concern AND help. I have the rabbits for MY peace of mind and to put some meat in the freezer. I don't want to deal with "pet people".....or pet rabbits. I don't sell. If I need to make money, I'll go back to work. I had someone call me...

    There's a pictue on post #145 of this thread. They're ugly. As I described them in that post, they look like they'd be Jack Skellington's pets if they ever made a "Nightmare Before Easter" movie. I've even tried to GIVE them away on social media, and no takers. Yeah, I've about decided to...

    Cuddles kindled this morning. 33 days and I was beginning to think another false pregnancy. Her first litter here, though she is an experienced breeder. 9 kits. All healthy pinkies....look exactly like They should, as purebred Californians. So finally a bright spot for the rabbitry. Honey It's...

    You're welcome for the rain. It came from the coast right through the heart of SC. We've had so much rain this spring, I wished HARD for it to stay in the air....didn't work....but hopefully NC won't claim it all and you'll get a nice share

    1 buck I've been using, 20 months old, was in a commercial program that lost its market. Purebred Californian. 1 buck, unproven, 5 months old, pedigreed Champagne d' Argent out of Grand Champion, with lots of hope for the future. Doe in question, bought at 6 mos, now 1 yr. Supposed pure New...

    S See? Without knowing you were from upstate NY, I might be telling you about frozen water bottles in the summer to keep your buck from going sterile. Instead, I will tell you about the litter I lost this week at 55 degrees because their lousy Mama didn't pull fur and hypothermia got them.

    @B&B Happy goats . sorry, it's me yet again. When it became necessary for me to get bifocals (happens to all of us eventually) it gave me an unusual problem. I was on the computer a lot. First, reading glasses (the bifocals part) usually has a focal distance of 11-16 inches. I was typically...

    @B&B Happy goats. Forgive me a short funny story? Remember when plastic lenses became popular. (Well, maybe you're not old enough to remember that). Anyway, I was insisting on glass lenses because I was rough on my glasses and the plastic scratched really easily. The ophthalmologist was trying...

    Suggestion? Go for it at WM. But get your prescription in hand also. (Make sure they tell you what your pupilary distance is-very important). Then, try an online place for a "backup" pair. It's worth $25 or so, just so you can compare the first time about quality, etc.(and we all need a spare...

    I'm pretty sure the mental institutional thing is federal, asked on the mandatory federal background questionnaire (4473), and technically required to be reported by each state to the feds (though not always adhered to...i.e. Look back to Nov 2017 to see how even the military did not report...

    I don't know if your macular tear results in some "weird" lens prescription, but if not, you might consider one of the online eyeglass providers. You still need to get a prescription locally....But the lens/frames are dirt cheap-like $25/pkg cheap- (non progressive bifocals). I've used one...

    Welcome to BYH (and the world of rabbits). Like you, I'm a beginner, less than half a step ahead. I only got my first rabbits in December. So far I think I've made most of the mistakes that can be made with rabbits. I hope so, anyway, cause I sure am getting tired of this learning curve! For...

    Children walking around outside barefoot? QUICK! Take those kids away and lock the parents up! Heresy! Madness! LOL Again, apologies for butting in where advice was not sought. It sounds like you have your act together (except for living in a ridiculous state like that). Best of luck to you, and...

    I'm a couple days late to this party, but I just gotta stick my big nose in here. The doctor asks if you have guns in the house? Seriously? I'd have to say "None of your D@#* business (and it isn't)....and as much as I hate to lie about ANYTHING..... if forced by law, I'd look them straight in...

    Sure wish TX wasn't so far away. I got abt 500 lbs of cloth left by my Mom. Just sitting there (taking up space). During early Covid mask making days, ppl were going crazy for elastic. Bet I got 20lbs in a drawer.
