  8. Good to know - being new to ducks, it will be a real learning experience.
  9. This may be a dumb question, but we've never had ducks before...Would electronet be a viable way of keeping predators out of duck areas without electrocuting the ducks? We are planning on having ducks and are concerned about coyotes and raccoons finding the duck arena a buffet... Liz K
  10. Hi, All - Looking for some ewes in OH for a small production farm, meat and possibly wool. And for training and trialing. Rams are Border Leicesters and will arrive in a couple of weeks. My boyfriend would like some North Country Cheviot ewes because he had wonderful success with this cross before. The wool was nice and the buyers loved the taste of the lamb meat. Ewes were productive, lambs were hearty. But he's been thinking about trying Texel ewes in the future. We saw some lambs (but not in person) and they looked MEATY. Questions to the group: 1) Anyone know of any North County Cheviot producers we might be able to pick up some ewes? We are eventually hoping for a steady flock of 70-80 ewes plus lambs in the next year. 2) Anyone had any experience with Texels? Primarily, it would be nice to hear about their breakability for dogs and the taste of their meat. I've read a post in another topic about the gaminess or muttonness of certain breeds' meats. We don't want easily dog broken stock, and don't plan to overwork any breed we may get. All opinions welcome, and thanks in advance - Liz K.
  11. Thanks, Amy! I can feel more confident that I can walk on the course with an assistive device that doubles as a stockcane now! Stability is important...but feeling hobbled and not completely recovered is a real bummer. Liz
  12. Thanks, Charlie - I checked the USBCHA rules last night and could not find anything either, but it was really late and I'm just a novice - this is my second USBCHA trial. The last one was Bluegrass last year, and we are coming back for more! Maybe some numbers instead of letters this time, and maybe a dog that doesn't help the sheep grow wings and fly over the fence, too! LOL!!! I completely understand about the blind person's cane reference. My fiberglass one is white with an orange tip. I guess I could email the judge, explain my situation, and see what he will let me use. That way, I'm not caught unprepared beforehand. And I LOVE the idea of going to a thrift shop - you just saved me some $$ if I can find a cane at one of the many thrift shops in the area. Thank you!! Liz
  13. Hi, Everyone - I recently underwent extensive knee surgery and will be trialing in about 10 days. The doctor said I can do anything I want, and this falls under that category (PLEASE, no flaming...) I still can't get around the field without some assistance, and my fiberglass stock cane does not support me well. What are the parameters for a "legal" stockcane for use on the field? If I have a normal cane like one would use to assist in walking, and it has a crook, is it still legal? Should I get a big wooden dowel and cut it down to size so there is no crook? I won't pull out of the trial for this, and would never ask someone else to run my dog, so those aren't options. Any suggestions before I run to the drugstore and buy a cane? Thanks in advance - Liz Klenk

  15. Hi, Vergil! I've got a girl who does a fairly nice outrun and fetch. It's the lift where we have trouble. Haley hits the sheeps' bubble and blasts right through it...does not slow down or stop or lie down even when we do a short OLF and I can get to her and make her lie down or stop. My solution has been to take away the sheep if I can't make her stop, because I generally don't have an extra person with me to set out the sheep. Working with lambs or reactive sheep is difficult because of our inability to get a good stop/slow at the top, pushing the sheep about halfway to me before she calms down and "steadies" out behind the flock. Any suggestion would be helpful since I'll be out working the sheep tomorrow. Thanks! Liz Klenk & Haley & Dryden
