    They didn't look super long when I checked for bumbles, and her ankle was pretty clearly swollen.

    Pretty well! No more scary health issues, and I've got their hooves in better condition. They have been pleased with the new brush to nibble on.

    Eleven! Do you have a shred of sanity left? One is my limit. I find most dogs irritating. I'm more of a livestock gal myself.

    I'm not now,nor have I ever been sane :rolleyes: ;) Amazing dogs for the most part . They stay with the flocks . Come around when it's time to eat .I just keep up the swamp rats at night . We bought them as puppies . These are Pyrenees working dogs . Guarding the goats is what they live for .I have no use for junk dogs . Hope to sell puppies to help feed cost . They guard the chickens too.They take turns eating so one is always with the goats .Walk through a flock of chickens like they aren't there .

    Looks like you all had a little June party here on Banty's thread...Hi all :frow

    Of course, I came late to the party... :idunno

    We just had a little visit from a rodent friend. Guess he wanted a drink of water. Says something about nature when the duck poop pool is considered a good source of water!!! :sick

    Thank the Greeks for plumbing!!! :bow

    I couldn't get my camera out to catch the little guy, but the security cam is always on ;)

    Also you can see part of the ducks' new half-as-steep ramp made of pressure treated lumber, composite decking and PVC. Complete with 45 degree grooming station.

    The other two in the photo are (from top to bottom) Tella and Yvonne (MamaDux).:D
