Well, with good ground they need 2.5-3 acres not to tear it up and need hay. You need to at least trim hooves every eight weeks or so which varies in cost. Stalls or loafing shed at least 8' st the short end and a minimum of 10x10. With vaccines, feed, and other care I would estimate around $100 per month. It can be a bit less if you have lots of pasture, and more if your farrier and hay costs are high. Hay around here for Bermuda is five or six a bale. Good hay is essential as they are not ruminants and can easily get lung or digestive issues. Mold is deadly.

@minihorse927 has good Ancona and so does @learycow

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

But wasting its life by not using the meat is wrong.

I so wish you would take a trip out here. I don't like the meat enough, and need to get rid of three.
