I would totally get one and just give DH the puppy dog eyes(the both of you) whenever he finds the pup LOL. He just doesn't realize yet how much he NEEDS a puppy, so you gotta help him out a little.

Somehow, I think I'll find myself getting into a lot of trouble when I get married.

We have alot of Pyrnees in our area, alot of people with sheep and goats. The dogs, just lay out there with them. They had a year old one free on the trading post page for my area a few weeks ago. I soooooo wanted to go get it!

Sorry to hear that TG :( I can't wait to see pics of the new brood and setup when you get it.

Pan will be 4 months on 8/3. I can put him with the 2 yearlings in the adjoining paddock (It's basically like the pasture split in half with a fence and gate that cen either be opened or closed) He plays with them and they are buddies. I'm afraid to put Ted in with him because he is boss of the herd, and he is bad to kick at feeding time. I worry Pan would be injured as Ted is a massive boy.

Thanks, ems. I'm so frustrated with the constant predator attacks, but I miss having my chickens already..

I think Pan would be a great fit with the yearlings.

Mama will be uncomfortable for a few days and you may want to cut her feed and just give her hay during that time until she starts to dry up.

Pan will be fine.

The yearlings would probably be preferable. They're closer to his age, know some stuff to teach him, but aren't liable to beat up on him. They could be kept together for a couple months until Dalilah dries up then they can all be tossed in together again.

Ok thanks guys :) I think the yearlings would be best too, both fillies so he will be the man of the lot! I know it sound stupid, but I'm sad for Pan and Dalilah to have to be separated. I know it will be hard for them :(

Awww TG I'm sorry to hear the last two disappeared as well. That is so frustrating. I completely free range my brood and so far I've been relatively lucky. I've lost 3 over the past 2 years to predators, and I guess two of those don't really count because the were either my dog or the neighbor dog. One I found out in the pasture. I take that back. I found a huge pile of feathers in the pasture. The body was long gone. Anyway, between them staying super close to our house, as in under our front deck and around the car port, and also our dogs, I guess they stay pretty safe from outside predators. I've seen one hawk do a touch and go once but without success. I love having our chickens all around our house (even though you do have to watch your step around our sidewalk...only downfall). Oh and as far as fattening them up, left overs! :) They eat anything!!! We keep a chicken plate to scrape dinner scraps on every night. Our trash never stinks because the chickens eat all the scraps so they stay out of our trash. :) At night I do lock them up. I've converted a rubbermaid yard shed into their coop and once they go to bed at sundown, I just close the door. The only time I've ever had trouble in my coop was when we lived in VA on a very wooded property and a possum got in there before I was able to get home to shut the door. I lost 3 that night. He was still in there, hiding in one of the next boxes. He had a pretty good headache when I got done with him. LOL!

I, too, think Pan will be just fine with the yearlings. Good luck!

Online saddle browsing is consuming my life! Torn between 4 saddles, as I can't decide if I want the prettiness of a tooled saddle or the security of a roughout training saddle. Found a used Rocking R show saddle, used Rocking R reining saddle, and a new RS training saddle at nearly same pricec. Or for $200 less, I can get a used RS training saddle. Ugh, I need a four sided dice to pick for me.

It really doesn't have to be a full bred LGD. We have two part Pyrenees and an Aussie. All were raised with chickens and wouldn't think of eating them. The two big dogs also have golden in them. One half and half one have pyr and border and the other half goldie. The Aussie rounds them up at night if we want them in earlier than they go in on their own and all three are loose with them when they are loose. Keeps the predators down. The wildlife here have their own routines and coming down to see if the chickens are out for the day is part of it. Because of a neighbor that shoots dogs on site they are in the house or penned when we aren't home. Happy Friday and here's to the weekend...

OMG ... and with a click of a button, I have 25 chicks coming to me next week .... incentive to get busy on the yard. Of course, I won't need it for a few weeks, as they will be in a brooder and then in the coop ...

Why am I nervous... ?
