Hawkeye, congrats again on your wins with your birds & the new one! You really have some pretty ones! I just don't think I could do the show thing, it's just way too much work for me & my DH wouldn't like me having to travel to shows. I wouldn't mind just going to one some time if I ever get the chance, but I don't know when that will be. It seems like now that I have all of these birds & animals it's really hard to get away, but I enjoy them so much, they make me happy.
I went to Wichita yesterday & needed to go to Petco for some food & saw a display with tags for the dogs, so I got two of them & they had a machine where you engraved them right there, it was so cool. I got their names on one side & our name & my cell number on the other, so now the two GPs have tags to identify who they belong to at least. We wanted them to have them so when they show up at someone's door like they did the other night they could just look at the tag & know immediately where they belong. My neighbor on the corner just happened to decide to check with me to see if Jasmine was mine when she showed up there. Fortunately we do know all of the people right close to us on this road, but down the hill on the other road is a different story. I do know one person down there that lives right directly in front of our property down there, but I don't know all of the other people because some have changed ownership & there are some renters down there. I don't know the person who has the goats though, so yes I suppose I should go meet them if I have time this week & let them know the dogs won't hurt their goats & what they're for. They were here last night, at least if I can hear them barking out there I know they're here, but some mornings they come back absolutely muddy & wet & there is a bog down that way & I'm sure they have water out for the goats & all & if there is water anywhere these dogs will get in it they love water. They don't care if it's muddy water either. The strange thing about the GPs fur though is that they can be a muddy mess & when they dry out it seems to just fall off & they look like they were never muddy again.
I let my turkeys out for awhile this morning & that tom turkey us the funniest thing, he struts around & shows off like crazy. They were outside of the hoop coop when I was trying to let the oldest guineas out & they were afraid of him. I had to get them to go away from the door before the guineas would come out.
The roof is going up on the breeder coop now, I can't wait for it to be done so I can take some pics.
Danz, I'm sorry about your pig, it sounds like there was something wrong with him from the beginning. I hope you have better luck with the next one. I would like to raise one some time again, that was the best pork I ever had the year we raised that pig.
Well gotta get busy around here, lots to do today, everyone have a great day!
