Your wolves got anti drone artillery pieces?



I'd like to find out.


You wouldn't want to harass them with armed drones, you would want to use the drone to haul candy to them as a special treat ;-)

And a new bird run to have turkeys for Thanksgiving b/c they're fun to have around.

2018

Repair roadways to working pens, materials in high use area and wash repairs. New well to provide water back side of property. We ever run out of projects but funding them is a big issue.

The bin will hold 3 tons of pellets. The mix that I get is fluffier and 2.5 is the max. I am saving about $30 per ton by being able to pick it up at the feed store not bagged.
