Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

The grass in the field was wet so the son pretty much "water skied" behind the horse as it took off down the field.

Now from the time he threw the lasso to when the horse had him in tow was like 5 seconds at most.

I'd say he was pulled a good 60 to 70 feet until he was able to get his hand free.

That could have ended a lot worse than it did.

Man was that a sight.

"Speaking of teeth and hooves, I once saw a horse pick a large woman out of the saddle of another horse by her arse and shake her like a dog with a sock. THE POWER was impressive."

Yep. One of my parents neighbors has some horses. Well one got loose and I went with their son to go wrangle it up. Well we found it taking in someones elses greener pasture.

He fashions a lasso out of an old course nylon rope I had. On his end he basically made a small loop for him to hold onto. He made a big mistake in how he made that loop. Well he's out in this field with the horse and he sure enough lasso's it but the horse is having none of it so it takes off like a bat out of hades. At that point Im standing maybe 50 ft away across a creek bordering the field on a road so I get a full view what happens next.

That loop he made pulled tight around his hand and he got taken for a bit of a "ride".

Mod you refered to your coup as a compound? mine has 8 foot tall 1/2 hardware cloth run with a 100 mile fencer,( yes I said 100 mile) live wire around the top with the fence of course being buried and grounded. Havent had a RACC-OON climb it yet, at least twice :}

Its open topped but the fence is so high that birds of prey, seem to know they can not fly out if they fly in so never had an issue there.

Having had horses for years I learned, a rear kick is defensive the FRONT legs are for hurting something really bad

ITHINK, Donkeys are well known for their dislike of canines and their alpha herding of sheep. Problem is, chickens wont be herded and donkeys couldn't care less about them, but they REALLY don't like dogs, foxes coyotes etc.

I've been enjoying all the fox stories. We caught a young one this summer in a live trap set for groundhogs. The older ones know better.

As for the coyote problem, we have a donkey here for that. Can't prove it works, and can't prove it doesn't. Some people are really believers.

moderation.. found on the backyard chickens website. a forum member suggests the Corgi and/or the Miniature Pinscher as being suitable for the protection of your chickens.

sometimes life offers a tidbit of decent humanity. after over 200 pages of relative nonsense, stillhere and mythravere's exchanges bloom into a wonderful expression of humanity, compassion and decency...which is worthy of a pause in life to acknowledge.

The reason coyotes are such a problem is they will move around when theres no food for them ! Once they come into an area nothing is off limits , they especially like housecats ! They can be dealt with but its difficult . They are very wary of traps .

Speaking of coyotes. When I was still living with my parents out in the country I came home real late one night. As soon as I shut the door on my car I started hearing this huge amount of "crying" from on top the hill above my parents house.

I bet there was at least 10 coyotes up there going after something.

Well that sent the hairs right up on the back of my neck. And by sound of them I'd say they were no more than a few hundred yards away.

So quickly got my rear end inside. Even though I was a short distance from the house.

Talk about freaky.
