All the ranchers around here have donkeys with their cattle. They run the show. I new a horse trainer that kept a couple. If he had a young stud horse that thought he was too bad ass to be broke, and a misbehaving knot head fool, he would put the stud in a round pen with a couple of donkeys. The horse soon figured out that being a big stud wasn't a match for a couple of mean little donkeys kicking and biting your belly while double teaming you..

I'd love to have pecan trees, but those take forever to produce, and get too big for my small plot of land.  One of my favorite nuts.

It is funny, though.  I saw pecan tree for sale at Home Depot.  They were about 1" caliper, and 5 feet tall.  I was picturing people taking those home, s excited about having a pecan tree, and then waiting 10 years for it do anything.

With the price of pecans of late, that would be a good bumper crop to have.

We have seen reintroduction of the wolve across large parts of the US.  Deer were overrunning many many states.  WI, IL, OH, MI, all the way out west.   Those reintroduced wolves now have large spread out packs, and they are multiplying like crazy.

So now farmers and ranchers everywhere are rediscovery that mixing in donkeys with your cattle can greatly up the price for wolves to find cattle as an easy meal.  

You should also see soon, as the wolf populations continue to grow, the reintroduction of wolf hounds to guard cattle. 

Around rural Washington state they are already hunting wolves.  The numbers are small, but definitely allowing hunting.

The Federal and state governments used to employee trappers to catch wolves and coyotes preying on cattle. Gillespie county in Texas was paying for coyote tails up to about 5 years ago. Now the Feds are paying to reintroduce wolves. I met an old trapper that worked for local ranchers. He was old school. Had a couple of big dogs he used to kill coyotes. He had one that looked like a Pitt bull that he would send into culverts to kill coyotes in their dens. I saw my first wolf in about 35 years a couple of years ago. Texas Parks and Wildlife says there are none remaining in our area. I saw one and told a nearby rancher. He said I saw him too, and started saying I told you so to his wife,

Around here we have really big coyote packs.   They move from neighborhood to neighborhood eating all the liberals cats.  

For some reasons liberals like to have cats that are declawed, but since the cat "really wants to go outside" they let them hang outside.  I have told them coyotes going to get that no claw goofball running around on the ground like that.  Sure enough coyotes move, fluffy, mittens ... all gone.  Coyotes move on.

Then standing out talking to neighbors.  They start hassling my conservative friend about his outdoor mean a55 cat that has claws being mean to their fluffies.  We still chuckle about how they have zero clue what played out.  

Republican cat was the only one to survive the onslaught.   As the cat herd thinned those coyotes started targeting him a bit, until he laid into them.  you would hear him at night, just getting after em.

Sounds like what the French are going through right now after they have disarmed themselves and the Islamic terrorists move in like coyotes on fluffies

Maybe Woody's Armory can take care of the coyotes, here and in France.

I have had lots of cats. Usually no more than 3-4 at a time. A few are good barn cats and live long lives. I have had a few that have gotten torn up by coyotes. Had one that I had to cut her tail off after she came in mauled up. She lasted another two years then disappeared. I always get any females fixed, the toms usually make it around 5 years if they are smart. Cats are not allowed in the house, unless they are the old mama cat and is 20 degrees outside. Then they are allowed a brief stay on a blanket out of the cold during the day.

Speaking of the armory, I picked up a bull barreled .22 savage with a threaded barrel yesterday. I watched my gunsmith working on a custom barrel for a ruger model 1. Is was a 25-06 caliber, 24" bull barrel. It was unique in that it had not just a fluted stainless barrel, but the fluting was spiraled with the rate of twist, instead of running straight down the length of the barrel. He was drilling and tapping it for scope mounts. Precision work at its finest. This is an old country boy that is a master gunsmith with his own lathes, drill presses and oven for teflon coating processes.
