    I was actually thinking of the "other" end, but it would suck up pellets and grain, too....not great for a bigger operation, but can be a great tool for a quicker cleanup time....tho, I don't want ya to blame me for suggesting ya continue your vacuum chore to the outside, too.......it will keep those "pills" from "little fingers"...and contained until ya dump it....:).....kids used to think they were Sugar Babies.....:lol:.....but, I don't think the candy is as "popular" as they once were....guess the word "sugar" in the name makes some people "cringe" these days....;)

    Wait, she's afraid of Missy and Sophie too? And chickens? And quiet little rabbits? The woman is far from an animal lover! But I guess EVERYONE loves Mel.

    Can you imagine a world with like minded people , like BYH folks....my goodness we would get things fixed, good foods for our families, put most pharmaceutical companies out of business......I 'd vote for a farmer as president....he knows what to cull, and how to compost washington, and plant the right crops to produce the best results....after all he Knows what fell off the turnip truck ;)
    And we sure know how to put up fences to keep thing in and out .....:D

    I guess that is why she is OK with Mel. Missy and Sophie come up quick. Mel sees no reason to rush, he can push to the front of the petting line when he gets there.

    And people wouldn't have to get permission from their city to keep chickens.
