I like it! I'm trying to move more toward having walk-in structures myself.

Eek! We get puma around here, too! I've had neighbors spot them, I've only ever seen the tracks. Good dog!

The last guy had his own practice as I understand it and recently took the state job or moved to the poultry division. I am not quite sure on it, because he said he works with all kinds of animals. He lives in Princeton, I really liked him and would like to get to know him better, he was real intelligent and interesting to listen too. All three had great personalities and did not come off as "uppity". I know this is stereotyping on my part, but so many Vets seem aloof and "uppity" when I see them in their offices.
These were people I think all of us would like to sit with, talk to and pick their brains. They were not afraid. " I do not know the answer to that" when I had questions about some things. I respect that more than a bad answer. On a couple things they even said " I think, and I am not sure but..." qualifying their answers.
BTW the PT training for the chickens was strenuous on them. Bert was the only one that could get the little chicken barbell over his head 10 times.
Hahaha! Thanks for the clarifications!
