    Basic H as a de-wormer?

    Hi all, does anyone use Basic H as a de-wormer? I ran across some information today that talked about how you can use it for sheep and cows, even dogs, as a de-wormer. They said 1.5t to a gallon of water every few months. Does anyone know if you can use this for other ruminants like goats or...

    Future Herder in KS

    Hey y'all, I don't own anything other than cats and dogs right now, but I'm saving up my money to get a house with some acreage in the next couple of years or so and to keep some a couple of donkeys and/or mules as companion animals as well as a small flock of chickens and maybe a few other...

    Rabbits and dog/cat questions

    Hi everyone, I'm looking into getting some Angora rabbits and want to keep them inside. I have two cats and a dog (Teddy Bear Shih Tzu), so basically the cats are bigger than the dog. They're all really good with animals as I have raised several sets of chicks and ducklings around them without...

    TheKindaFarmGal's Journal - Long overdue updates! Cow calved

    Before I begin, I just want to say that @micah wotring made me do this. I mentioned I was thinking about starting a journal, and he made a ridiculous claim that left me no option but to start a journal as soon as I could. And that is now. :D =D Now, I probably won't be very good at this, cuz...

    A Pitbull recently showed up...

    on the ranch. He sat under a tree in the shade and except for the reaction the goats had to him we wouldn´t have noticed. He had to have escaped from someone as he was dragging a long chain. He was not aggresive and was very easy going. No attempt on the goats, the chickens, ducks OR the...

    What´s the point of having a LGD....

    If you have to have such a dang good fence to keep The LGDs in anyways? We have 15 goats...and more on the way. We love our goats and have recently moved to a new area. We have yet to put up better fences which we are working towards, and meanwhile the neighbors dogs come over nightly and many...

    Akitas and Livestock (long shot...)

    I know this is a long shot, but has anyone had any experience with having Akitas or Akita-mixes around livestock? I've been around several Akitas growing up, and owned an Akita/German Shepherd mix as a teen/young adult, and it was my most-loved, and most-missed dog I've ever had. He was very...

    A place to discuss natural treatment of parasites

    I saw this forum doesn't have many posts on it and not much activity, which saddens me. I'm a big fan of using natural means to maintain health when at all possible, especially for animals. Lately I've been exploring the same methods for my dogs, though I've used natural methods on them down...
