Yes! We're a year or two from having a farm but I am stoked for this book, especially to know how to incorporate different species of Livestock Guardians! I'm thinking about specializing in heritage breeds and am enamored with the American Mammoth Jackstock Ass (info here—check out those EARS!!: http://www.livestockconservancy.org/index.php/heritage/internal/amj), but I also love dogs and read that asses and donkeys will kill 'em. Looking forward to picking up the book and learning more in time!
