After checking a few other threads I realised there was an abundance of animal rearers/keepers and I thought some might like a special spot just for sharing Smile I don't have any farm animals at present but here are my two four legged friends Salem and Suki..

no animals here BJM (unless I count the neighbour's cat!) but I'm sure people like CW and Billy will be along soon!

They're not exactly livestock, but these two are very good at accelerating the compost heap!

During the war, my father (aged about 12) went to tea with a friend - they were eating a plate of stew, when the friend's mother said 'How do you like the taste of little Fluffy', and it turned out that they were eating pet rabbit stew! They say you shouldn't eat meat which has been named....

She is complete a camera whore, strikes a pose whenever, where ever a camera is pointed at her.

Yes, pure black lab, currently 8 months old. When she is two we will have her hips checked, then if she is capable, we will let her have a litter. She has such a wonderful loving temperament that we want her to have pups to nurture and pass on those great genes.
