    Howdy,

    I don't wish to detract from the masculine seriousness of the thread, so about that wall. When I saw the batter, my initial thought was a retaining wall, but then I realized the wall is rather a "fence". Hopefully that isn't a derogatory or insulting reference. Anyhow, I'm guessing that it is battered on both sides.
    How many wythes? and /or what are the sectional profile dimesnsions?
    I didn't notice clinkers being used, although, from what I understand, they are primarily used for aesthetic dressing up purposes.
    I was this>< close to using "coping". I think of coping, whether pre cast or natural stone, as laying "flat". Is the vertical orientation a family method or more of a typical approach?
    The polychrome blending of green, grays and tans is nice.

    Your wall brought me back to Chaco...

    Another tragic case of artistic sacrifice.

    Yeah, that sounds pretty professional. But mostly what was taken away from your last message is that your pony is a movie star.

    Hey mick. Maybe you should check out "Any Human Heart" from Masterpiece Theater? Really enjoyed that one, and think you would too. It's really long and episodic, but it's chopped up so if you don't like it you can stop. Also, it was produced/written in the UK and your translation is needed.

    In response to your last blog post, age is relative. I remember being younger and thinking "High schoolers are so cool!" and once I was in high school, "College kids are so cool!" Now it's "adults must have it more together than I do."

    And face it: you do.

    And no matter how old you are, honey, you've always got your whole life ahead of you. So, stretch in the morning, take a hot shower at night, and when you need a daytime nap, take one

    Rejoice in your old age and the wisdm of your years: You've earned them.

    Thank you very much, it's not very often that I get to ask a question of someone who is directly linked to the issue which I'm trying to understand. My isolation means that I don't get to meet many different kinds of people, so you're the first person in the field of food production that I've been able to speak to directly (well, almost directly). I've never thought about what the inhibition of antibiotics would mean to the well being of the animals. Of course it makes sense now that I think about it, how would humans fare if antibiotics use was banned?

    From what I've heard and read and worked out up until this point, it seems to me that even if all of the other benefits of organic food, such as better taste, more nutrients, ect. actually were true, it would still be a terrible idea to switch to producing food using organic methods just because of decreased crop yields.

Running- off the tractor

by prendrelemick on 08-08-2014 at 01:03 PM
Running off the tractor.

Dad's tractor, a 1958 Massey Ferguson 65, was a monument to his optimism. He kept it
parked up the "Strips", a steep track above the farm. This was because it had no
working starter motor, or battery, or in fact any electrical systems at all.
It had to be "run off", and then kept running until the day's work was done.
"Whatever you do, Don't stall the tractor!" was the mantra

Gwen

by prendrelemick on 10-15-2013 at 03:50 AM
The new pup, Gwen, has arrived. The house is a tip and has a slightly unpleasent fragrance, we are tired due to the howling in the night. However, I think it is important that she lives in the house for a week or two so she knows she belongs.

I can just about get the sheep jobs done with Meg but she'll only ever be a stop gap and then a yard dog - I just can't trust her - she sets off to round up some sheep and I can't be sure she'll come back -or stop when she needs to. She won't

More Meg

by prendrelemick on 09-02-2013 at 08:10 AM
Things have settled down with Meg, Mainly because I have resigned myself to the long haul, abandoning all her previous training and starting afresh - as though she is new to sheep doggery. We're getting along fine and we are completing tasks together. I am working on the principle that REAL work is the best training, so I take her out on her own and we round some sheep up, it often goes a bit wrong, and usually takes longer than it should, but I don't bring Nelly along so we HAVE to manage, and

Meg again.

by prendrelemick on 07-12-2013 at 04:22 PM
Meg's training is now on phase three. Phase one was fairly disasterous, where I tried her with sheep straight away and she kept running off in ever increasing circles. Phase two was to take off all the pressure and have nothing to do with sheep for a bit, so that the "come to me" command now means come here and have a cuddle, and "lie down" means roll over and have your tummy scratched. This has worked as far as it goes, she has become alot more relaxed.

Phase

Meg -Disaster and back again.

by prendrelemick on 06-30-2013 at 06:01 AM
My son has been in California for a week or two (working) so his body clock is all to pot. Yesterday he got up at 2 am and took the dogs for a walk (he didn't know about Meg's behavior). Anyway, she ran off at the first sight of sheep and would not return to him, and eventually disappeared. This is fairly serious in sheep country, when it comes to loose dogs, farmers tend to shoot first and ask questions later .

When I got up I noticed there were alot of sheep in front of the
