    Hello from Muleskinner Farm in Northeast Arkansas. We have an assortment of "ines" (equine, canine and feline) plus "fowl" (chickens, guineas, turkeys & ducks) that is constantly changing, mostly at husbands "whim". I never know when he leaves with the horse trailer what he will come back with. For that matter, what we will find when we come back from a road trip. We have a neighbor that loves to "gift" us with things he thinks we need .. e.g. Plowed up garden, absolutely ugly ducks, gal. jugs of his brothers homemade wine, even a highway dept. stop sign! Right now we have a dozen or more chickens, 6 guineas, 2 dogs, 2 mules, 1 horse and 3 donkeys (1 is our first donkey baby). My husband was raised in the country but I was a city girl when I met him on a blind date 27 yrs ago. Needless to say, I have learned a lot about animals from him and he has learned "just enough" technology from me to surf the net. What would his retirement have been if I had not shown him how to find Craig's List and You Tube ; ) As I just said, he is retired and so am I (a little early due to 2 rounds of cancer) so we have plenty of time to do "farmstead" stuff. Hope to learn more stuff here. Tina

    [​IMG] You sound like a real good sport Tina, no use sweating the small stuff. You do have an odd neighbor tho. He sounds like a character off some sitcom.
