Also consider getting a big tough dog or two to guard your coop.


Here in San Diego there used to be a 25 dollar bounty on Coyote pelts.   Now its against the law.

 

Just make sure of the rules and regs for your state AND county.  SSS is always good.

So true. Right now coyotes are in season for hunting in MO. Fortunately, we live in an area dense with livestock farming. Goats, sheep and cattle are abundant thanks to the lush grazing. Plus there are so many ridges and hills that livestock is king. Farmers have the right to dispose of nuisance wild animals whenever they pose a threat to livestock or people.

 

About 5 years ago, Amish men out hunting in their annual predator sweep encountered a male cougar about a mile and a half from our farm. The cougar threatened them and wouldn't retreat when they encountered it and they were forced to shoot it. Afterwards they phoned the conservation department and reported the incident as cougars are protected in MO. The game warden came out, interviewed the men, reported it as a legit kill and took the cat away.

 

For the OP, call the local conservation dept and report the problem. They might be able to help by providing live traps for coyote control or at least make them aware of the fact that there is a problem and they need to deal with it or the landowner is going to be forced to.

 

Personally, we always have a 45 nearby whenever we are outside or in the timber. Just smart to be protected in case we encounter a coyote or feral hog.

And the maker also said you have a direct line to him through his son... you don't "need" the church to get where we all hope to be going :D Justsayin


​I agree totally on your view of organize religion. I stopped going to church many years ago after being shunned by the members. I sent my children to sunday school and I had them baptized. Some still go to church but we all love and worship daily from where ever we may be! As for the money part I give often and of my own choosing of who needs it or needs what.

My daughter that is the topic of my conversation does go to church and she and her family are very active in the church. I feel if the good lord told me it is not my place to judge her then no one else has that right. I also believe that the maker is the only one that should judge any and all of us.

I don't like most of my kids and grandchildren' tattoo's. They are big and cannot be hidden in public most of the time. At least one son did get his on his calf so that other people don't see it if he goes to work.

I have never liked big tattoo's that hang out. And I have some family that has them.

My youngest daughter is married to a lady that has 4 children. And most people do not like or accept her life style.

She had a large tattoo put on her back that say's "Let the wicked judges be judged". I am one of the biggest homophobes she knows.

And it was very hard for me to accept her life choices. But after much prayer the good Lord told me that he understood I could not stop loving my child. That what ever she does is between him and her. I love that! And I can accept that..

So amazing doodles :love  :hugs I understand.  The Lord had to teach me I was to stop blaming myself for my son's choices.  He had been shown the right path,   it was his choice to take the other road, deny Him and choose the darkness.  My job was to love him, the rest was between them.

Funny how tho our children's choices were different, the message to us moms was the same.

This reminds me of my mini horse when we got nearly 2 feet of snow overnight! He stayed in the shed for over a week before the snow was low enough his belly would clear it! Even then he was following trails broken by the big horses (which were outside wandering around in the 2 foot snow... why? I don't know... their food and water was in the shed)

post #58419 of 62515

Yeah, what is it with horses anyway? When I had my appaloosa/Morgan cross mare, she would shun her open stall in snow and stand outside with three inches of snow on her back. I'd go out, brush her off and one day out of curiosity, ran my fingers deep in her winter coat till I hit skin. She was toasty warm and dry. That downy under coat really protects them just as down protects a chicken. 

 

Still I wonder why they prefer standing out in the snow over being inside where it is warm and dry.
