And, I know nothing about this Vaseline thing. Never heard of it before. But, then again, I don't live in South Dakota. I know Kansas farmers put something on the cows' teats, but Kenny type critters have always fared well in my territory without Vaseline.
We use a 3-gallon metal waterer, and they make a metal heater thingie that it can sit on. The damn things are expensive, though. They used to last years and years, but now they're made in China and we can only get a couple years out of them, but we HAVE to have them, and until they rust through, the do work very well. You can shop around for the best price, but here's the combo I'm talking about:

Hang in there with your crappy weather. HR at any Corporation would tell you they didn't pick where you chose to live if you have to call in, in inclement weather.

Just saying.

Wait, WHAT? I got a promotion already? From step-sister to ACTUAL sister? MooHOOO! (That's "woohoo" in cow talk.) I feel so special!

I am writing this now because there will be many posts throughout the day to clutter things up.........and SP aka YKW......aka you know who........(we have many other names for her) she no longer feels the need to back read even though she is the youngest in the coop.........my personal feeling is she should be required to keep up with us or get a ticket ! But thats just my opinion............
So she will probably not see this..........so shhhhhh
Keep this to yourself..........because she’s a real firecracker!!!! Scares me sometimes..........
Meanwhile..........stay safe pioneer woman!!! Glad weather was not a severe as originally suspected.......
Have I somehow given you all the impression that I'm a "good" one? Haha, just wait, you'll find out. I'm bad like SP. I try to behave myself in public, but I have a streak a mile wide, and sometimes it pops out when it's least expected. But that's OK, you can be my good sister, and SP can be my bad sister, so no matter who I am at any given time, at least I'll have ONE sister here.

Might this be the next big Internet Hoax?

https://www.motherearthnews.com/home...e-zm0z15djzdel


Field Trial Results by "The Chicken Mama" (not SP):
Vaseline for Chicken Comb Protection? | The Chicken Mama
You know, the silliest thing I can think of is running around trying to catch a rooster and put Vaseline on his comb. Every day. NOT HAPPENING. We get pretty cold here, and as long as the roos are in the coop and out of the bitter wind when it's really cold (below zero), they don't have a problem. It's like people who put blankets on their horses in the winter. They think they're helping, but a horse is warmer with a fluffed up haircoat that holds warm air next to his skin. Blankets crush it down and make them feel colder. I used to freak when I'd see my horses with a thick layer of snow on their backs, until my logic kicked in and told me that if the snow wasn't melted, it meant the hair was sufficiently insulating to keep their body heat inside, where it belongs.

But I digress...

Now I have something serious to say. Seriously. When I first joined DT back in whenever it was (2010?), I had the impression that you guys were a bunch of snooty snots, and I was afraid to post for fear of being criticized or trounced for something I said or said I did. Like getting my first Dobe from a backyard breeder. There. It's out. I finally said it. I didn't know about BYBs at the time, and I don't blame myself at all because I loved Ninja more than life itself, and he saved my life (for real) once and I will always cherish his memory. He was my shadow and constant companion for 15 years and I never cried so hard as I did the day I had to send him across the Bridge.

And I pretty much stayed away from participating here because I probably do things differently than most of you. Then again, I have different conditions than most of you. I have learned to be my own vet. I can do anything a vet tech can do (just not surgery) and have learned a lot of things in the School of Hard Knocks. But if I got on here and asked a question about something and the first response is "what did the vet say?" when I haven't BEEN to the vet... I just didn't want to subject myself to the lecturing that would follow.

I still came here and read, though. And started to post with what I thought might be helpful information from time to time, but then didn't hit "post" because who am I really? Someone who never posts or participates, and then all of a sudden wants to jump in and give advice? Yeah. So I mostly didn't.

But then, Zipper left. And I came back here because I needed a little sympathy from people who would know what I was going through. And what did I find? The most wonderful, friendly, silly, down to earth people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I get up in the morning and actually look forward to getting on here and seeing what new stories and humor are waiting for me.

YOU GUYS MAKE MY DAY. Thank you!

Oh, and by the way, the snow's not too bad, but the wind is worse today, so it's blowing it all around and making big drifts. Can't be bothered to keep shoveling, because by the time I'm finished, the wind has it all filled in again. So I'm waiting for it to melt. Or for the wind to stop. Preferably the WIND TO STOP. I can take cold, and snow, if it was just not so windy. But I'm going to try living like the animals do, one day, one MOMENT, at a time. There's snow, and I have to walk through it. So what? Instead of worrying about HOW I'll walk through it, I'll just walk through it.

Oh, and another thing (sheesh, this is getting long). I have to brag on my Other Dogs. Jasper is our Pyrenees, and his job is to look after the millions of chickens we have now. He's the best. Anyway, last night I was taking one of the "wild" pullets from the cow barn around to the coop, and she was yelling like I was skinning her alive. I came out of the cow barn just as Jasper was rushing to her aid - he passed me and then realized the yelling was coming from ME and did a quick about-face. I stopped and showed him the chicken and said, "It's OK, Jasper, I'm just taking her to her house," and he stopped barking, but the look on his face was "YOU? YOU are hurting one of my chickens?????" So I kept walking, but he followed along with his nose on my leg, and for just a millisecond, I wondered if he was actually going to BITE me, LOL! Of course, he would NEVER, but he was beside himself with distress that his boss was "hurting" one of the chickens. I just love that dog. After I put her in the coop, I turned around and told him he was a good boy, and he started play-bowing and woofing at me, so I gave him a couple of cookies and a pat on the head. Did I mention I love that dog?

And Missy, the Hairy Dog, also protector and cat monitor (boy is SHE busy now with all these cats!) was lying on the couch in Zipper's old spot last night when one of the young adult cats came screaming in from the kitchen and started scratching on the end of the couch. Missy leaned forward and said, "YARK!" at her and she vamoosed! LOL! Missy knows I don't like the cats scratching on the furniture, or the carpets, and she helps me by stopping them when she sees or hears them being bad. I told her she was the best deputy sheriff anyone could ask for and gave her a cookie, too.

My babies are all spoiled, what can I say?

OK, I guess I've babbled on enough for one morning. I need to go wake up my broken husband and then get ready to do morning chores. The wind chill this morning is FIVE, so it won't be pleasant, but hopefully we won't need to be outside too long. Oliver is taking care of the milking chores for me for a few days, bless his pointy little head.

Great post Lannie.......YUP..... I was a lurker for quite some time also......but I really became hooked on this thread and all the crazy people ........Scott and Hoss are the really the extent of my face to face friends. But I still felt the need to socialize with creatures other than Scott and Hoss so I visited this thread and immediately found my home.
I have lived in the city all of my life and knew little about country life.......or elks that bugle or the crap that farmers have to deal with but through this thread I have been exposed to so much knowledge and made some really great friends that I will cherish forever.
You are my newest friend...........chic living off the grid.........we really admire your grit!
AND ...unlike our face to face humans ... .....when we feel the need for quiet....all we have to do is log off............this group is family to me.
Plus it is really good to know.... that so much love remains in this world............our coop demonstrates this love.
And yeah............I even love ECIN.........he irritating ......but consistent.

Hoss

Okay, Lannie, I just learned from you some new farm lingo.... That Roosters are referred to as "Roos" by you ranchers.


This is a quandary- so what are roosters called in Australia?

Here's the take-away lines from Lannie's lengthy morning soliloquy, which we throroughly enjoy reading.

Great post Lannie ! Really glad to have you on here !!!!!! I think at this time that you ,Sandy2223 and I are the only ranchers and farmers on here AND Today is National Farmer day !

I was on a few ag sites - but after being in this business for so long - well I'm sort of tried of ag - really have NO idea how I found this site - Somebody upstairs must have guided me here - lol I lurked around for a while - liked reading everybody's posts on here - even Lady Di !

The best part is all the friendships I have made on here - Hope this is OK to post , But when Ali girl was sick - I had MC call me - with advise - she was so helpful and I send Aunt B my number - we all know of her wisdom on Dobers ! Then there is the rest of the crew - I have talked to SD , Alan and 6-7 on the phone - lol there great to talk to !

I forgot - I called Fritz to one time on Ali - it was about her Copper Storage Disease as Fritz has a female with it and we were discussing what we did for our Dobers - I was at the shop and when we hung up - I looked at my phone - we had talked almost 60 minutes - lol So easy to do when talking about our dogs !

Thanks everybody !

Funny what the addition of a little word can do to a sentence. I read this as "I have to talk to SD, Alan and 6-7 on the phone." How noble of you to step up and do those little chores everyone else tries to avoid!

Not your error this time, ECIN. My eyeballs apparently aren't working well this morning.

The best part is all the friendships I have made on here - Hope this is OK to post , But when Ali girl was sick - I had MC call me - with advise - she was so helpful and I send Aunt B my number - we all know of her wisdom on Dobers ! Then there is the rest of the crew - I have talked to SD , Alan and 6-7 on the phone - lol there great to talk to !

I forgot - I called Fritz to one time on Ali - it was about her Copper Storage Disease as Fritz has a female with it and we were discussing what we did for our Dobers - I was at the shop and when we hung up - I looked at my phone - we had talked almost 60 minutes - lol So easy to do when talking about our dogs !

Thanks everybody !

Doc
I think the friendships people make here can be very, very "real" and really cool. It's funny how online friendships can be very deep. I'm forever grateful to this forum. I stumbled on it when I got my first girl...backyard bred, with a whole lot of problems. I've made some very very good friends, and I couldn't have gotten through everything with Shanoa without the support of folks here. Nor would I have learned everything I've learned without people here. I still miss a lot of the people that have left (or, disappeared...I still worry about a few people that have simply gone "poof" with no trace).

In other news, we did, in fact, get a few snowflakes this morning. They disappeared within about 15 minutes but...yuck! A little too early for me!

An inch and a half here...it stuck as soon as it started falling, surprisingly. Or maybe not so much...it's been cold. Down to 10 overnight.

29 right at the moment, but it should get above freezing at least. After all, it's not even 11AM yet (my time )

Eau Beau!

Auntie Bug KNOWS that all the rotten winter weather comes out of the frozen north and is controlled by Canada's Beau 67.

If this kind of cold keeps up you won't have to walk on water Beau--you can just slap on a pair of snow shoes and trot merrily away o top of the snow. (I guess that's just the winter version of walking on water--frozen water)

Lovely left hand Portland overnight
50 degree F
projected high for Friday 58 degrees
Cold and clear this morning with wind out of the east--too windy and waaay too cold for AB--cats already went back to bed--taking up all of the bed and Toad is still sticking it out in the computer area with me where it's 64 degrees. Come on sun--once it's shining in the living room windows it'll warm up faster than the furnace can too it.

Must be time to go back to bed for a morning nap...

Nice here in middle TN for now (76 as I type), but that cold front is coming through tonight; tomorrow's high around 61 with temps dropping into the upper 30s tomorrow night. I just took Mocha out back and happened to see this bee on our back deck plants so I went back in and grabbed the camera.

When I first joined DT back in whenever it was (2010?), I had the impression that you guys were a bunch of snooty snots, and I was afraid to post for fear of being criticized or trounced for something I said or said I did. Like getting my first Dobe from a backyard breeder. There. It's out. I finally said it. I didn't know about BYBs at the time, and I don't blame myself at all because I loved Ninja more than life itself, and he saved my life (for real) once and I will always cherish his memory. He was my shadow and constant companion for 15 years and I never cried so hard as I did the day I had to send him across the Bridge.

And I pretty much stayed away from participating here because I probably do things differently than most of you. Then again, I have different conditions than most of you. I have learned to be my own vet. I can do anything a vet tech can do (just not surgery) and have learned a lot of things in the School of Hard Knocks. But if I got on here and asked a question about something and the first response is "what did the vet say?" when I haven't BEEN to the vet... I just didn't want to subject myself to the lecturing that would follow.

I still came here and read, though. And started to post with what I thought might be helpful information from time to time, but then didn't hit "post" because who am I really? Someone who never posts or participates, and then all of a sudden wants to jump in and give advice? Yeah. So I mostly didn't.

But then, Zipper left. And I came back here because I needed a little sympathy from people who would know what I was going through. And what did I find? The most wonderful, friendly, silly, down to earth people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I get up in the morning and actually look forward to getting on here and seeing what new stories and humor are waiting for me.

YOU GUYS MAKE MY DAY. Thank you!

-----------------------------------------------------------

This Larry joined a dozen years ago, and contributed much & often.
- @ times: more or less, to the dis-satisfaction of the regulars...sometimes

I grew up on a beef & pig farm, and Beau tends to train different, than the masses or what's in the books.
- no treats, no clicker training, no puppy proofing home, discipline handed out when needed (which is very rare)
- and no need for crate training, pups day bed is a leather sectional

So the Beaumont training methods, were not always well received...but always worked, O'h the irony.
- our dogs are always unleashed, with zero fear of touching the road way
- heck, they won't even stay outside alone...for more than 30 seconds
- I also train with an element of SA, and practice strong Bond building
- my pups are proofed to say "home-alone" at 4.5 months young...without even a shredded stuffie
- every toy has specific rules & boundaries...and carrying dads socks or moms undies from the warm dryer...is encouraged
- but human processions, area all safe here // because the early 24-7 supervision was done, in the first few months

So I find this Chicken Hawk thread refreshing...to let ones guard down...and leave old water under the bridge.
- while it turns out, everyone that joined this "railroad derail" madness...are fun people, to share conversations with
- so the addiction started, coming back here daily

LDi - did PapaBear forget to write some "personal sweetness", for Ya ?
- U so easy to read
- now there is no "element of surprise" w/Lannie...when I jump out of the bushes LOL

And the auto salesman stuff - I've had my share of some great deals, that I cultivated out of thin air // and the seller, can't stop thanking me.
- its an added bonus, when some turn into rather good friends...like RubyRed did
