Re: WHo Would Attack Us First?

Don't forget to dip your bullets in bacon fat or lard, and let them know that you do so! (They believe that will prevent them from going to heaven.)

Re: IN A DISASTER PRONE ZONE? WHAT KEEPS YOU IN YOURS?

EVERY area has it's own particular set of natural hazards, whether it's hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, drought, blizzards/ice storms, wildfires, etc. All you can do is decide WHAT kind of hazards you can live with, and plan accordingly. For us, we're midway between family, cost of living is rel...

Re: Got My Goat(s)!

Yes, we absolutely favor a wall on our part of the border! We DO have a wall on part, but there ARE gaps...at the river (which actually flows NORTH from Mexico) they just walk right through, and where the country gets rough (a portion of some of the mountains here are on BOTH sides of the border) th...

Re: Got My Goat(s)!

No horns...both he and mama have been disbudded. Don't have time to do the banding this weekend, as we are busy with our theater commitments, so unless I hear otherwise, next Saturday we will be having us a bit of a rodeo here (trying to get the thing on him. I will DEFINITELY be counting on some he...

Re: 2016 MAY - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month?

Picked up 150 lbs of whole grains (50 each of whole wheat, whole oats and whole barley) and 10 lbs of sunflower seeds. Mixed them all together, and I have 160 lbs of goat feed. Also got 6 pkgs of beef kidney (ranging from $1.06 to $1.24) to cut up and add to rice and mixed veggies for dog food.

Made a stop at the home of a family from our church that is moving, and came home with 2 goats (LaMancha doe and her buckling kid) 9 16-ft cattle panels, a milking stand, and matching stool. After getting them all home, had to set up a temporary goat pen adjacent to the corral (horses did NOT know w...

Also got 9 fencing panels to keep them contained, and a nice milking stand with s...

Re: TIPS FOR PREPPERS WITH FINANCIAL AND BUDGET DIFFICULTIES

My husband and I both "brown bag" our lunches. Actually, we take our insulated lunchboxes with our lunches, plus thermoses/water bottles. I actually have a "food drawer" in my desk at work...that way, I have lunch and "snack" items that I've brought from home, as well a...

Re: 2016 MAY - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month?

Ice, that is really a killer deal on 6m plastic. Wow.. Yes, it WAS a killer deal...that stuff usually runs about $40 per roll, so finding it at $2.78, I couldn't NOT buy it! Today, while I had the truck in to the shop for an oil change, general check-over, and had the lift motor for the passenger s...

Re: 2016 MAY - What Did You Do To Prepare This Week/Month?

Local ranch store had 10 ft x 50 ft rolls of 6-mil thick ag on clearance for $2.78 per roll :D Needless to say, I cleaned them out :thumbsup: Since I'm planning on building several greenhouses, it will be put to good use!
