  1. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Anyone here have goats and sheep, or one or the other? What is good to plant for them? I would like something that I do not have to plant every year. I am looking at getting short haired sheep. Pasture will be around seven acres. There is a lot of underbrush on the area right now. Lots of...
  2. General Discussion
    So every once in awhile. I throw out some information to my boss about what I've learned from non MSM sites. Things about what's really going on in the world. Things like the middle east, Russia/China and or the economy. And all I get is, "you're crazy", "You reading those wacko web sites...
  3. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    How far should I space tee post for my goat / sheep field? This same field is going to double as a chicken field. In a previous thread talked about goat fencing and other ideas, but how far should the tee post be spaced? My brother spaced his tee post 10 feet apart for his cattle and goats...

  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This is, perhaps, the best article I've read about procuring your own meat post-SHTF. The author goes into a brief overview of each of the critters he raises, their output and his thoughts on what would be required to sustain them without outside resources. It's a short article, approx 5-10...

    Sheep jump at the slightest noise. Sheep panic at the first sign of danger. Sheep are frightened, paranoid animals. Are YOU a sheep?
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    After years of trying to spread the word about preparedness and self reliance/survival in disaster situations, I've recently decided to just give up. Nearly everyone I talk to about these things either laughs, blows me off, etc. I've just decided to go "dark" with my preps. I keep it all to...
  10. Political News and Discussion
    The following is from a form newsletter I get from the Obama camp every week or so. It can be infuriating but often can be amusing. The following is just such a letter. I thought you would all find it interesting because on top of all the stimulus and tax money these trouser stains get, they...
  11. General Discussion
