Post navigation ← English: Moo DoRD @TFWS → 8 Responses Heh… Passed that one on… My son is convinced that the ultimate plan is to convert all books to the internet, then delete all that don’t agree with the powers that be. He plans on doing all he can to safeguard hard copy classics. He’s a bit paranoid. Not outrageously so. bit somewhat. He does _not_ trust the government. Loading... Your son is likely correct. Recommend Ayn Rand’s “Anthem” if he hasn’t read it. Sort of corny is a way– but in it, it’s the crappy old books from the *Unmentionable Time* that save a guy from a completely totalitarian society. Fun stuff. Loading... Your contact link doesn’t work… I get a 404 message. My email is outrageously slow…they’ve upgraded it unworkable. So… https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/grd/6860281317.html I don’t know if you have an order in already, and I know that SA is far away…but…??? it looked like a good candidate for your needs. Loading... Weird. What a cutie! But out of my price range and too far away. Actually one of our neighbors (couple of miles away) is scheduled to deliver soon so if it’s a female, we’re getting it– I think- as soon as it’s weaned. Loading... Well…I’d rather have female too…offers the possibility of offsetting the purchase price! But…as I said before…a visit from the vet reduces the annoyance factor. Stallions…hmmm…Jacks also, I assume … can be a bit difficult to handle if you don’t get them started right. But not really much difference in the first year. If you have the vet out to cut them when they’re about 6-8 months old, you can eliminate the obnoxious factor. But…male or female, you need to handle them and give them basic training in the first year or two. They need to let you catch them – even better, get them to walk up to you – let you halter them, and lead. Also, learn to pick up their feet so that if necessary they don’t have to be tranqed to have their hooves trimmed. And stand tied. Short version: Catch halter lead stand tied allow feet to be picked up and worked on. But…you probably know all this already. Loading... I did not *know* but I am coming to learn! Loading... If you buy the baby…pump the sellers for info: who is their vet, who is their farrier, where do they buy feed/tack They should have her halter broke – you’ll know about that when you go to visit…which you should do several times after she’s foaled, and before you pick her up – probably between 4 and 6 months of age. Do they bring her in on a lead line, or just let her follow mom – that kind of thing. Watch and learn! ask questions…lots of quetions! Loading... Donkey man is supposed to be calling today. Went back and looked at this. Any other suggestions? Loading... Comments are closed.
