    Thank you Pete. I decided it was time to post on here. Been joined for awhile just have not posted. Now I thought was the time. The sebbies are in great feathering this year. So I will be taking pictures of them and posting them.

    They are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing pictures of them with us.

    I'm also a Rudolph! I live in Minnesota. We have 2 white Sebastopols (Sebastian and Arwen), along with 3 mini-Dachshunds, 20 chickens, and 15 ducks. They mean the world to us.

    Are you ever worry about day time predators? How do you make sure they are safe? Sebastian and Arwen get to be outside in a grassy fenced-in area when we're home during daylight hours. They come inside the house when we're gone or when it's dark outside.

    Thanks,
    Amanda Rudolph

    My husband with Arwen and Sebastian (Sebastian has a tuft).

    Hi Amanda nice to meet another Rudolph [​IMG] and both of us have Sebastopols. You are welcome on sharing the pictures. I am very proud of our sebbies.
    They free range during the day time here. Nothing has bothered them because we have a large gaggle and the chase off critter's. Plus my husband has gotten rid of the preditors that were taking and killing our ducks. So I sold all the call ducks and the runners. We have two ducks left and they are here until they pass. I always put the ducks and the geese in their pens at night time so they are safe from preditors. Pretty much they stay close by the house off an on during the daytime. Later towards the afternoon they go up into the front pasture and graze. Then back here by the house.


    Your husband looks cute holding the two sebbies. They are such a loveable breed.
