I'm currently on my retirement curve and have established water associations in Wash. state, built old style and well as new Engineering style septics, and have livestock experience. I'm interested in basing myself near mom!!! and Colorado is real, real close. I also have some "cash flow" from two small pensions so am pretty self-sufficient "kash" wise. Four grandparents homesteaded in Minn. and Canada. Let me know contact infor. and a good time this early spring to connect.

I have a High School Valedictorian friend in Denver I visit, along with planning this spring to buy a 4X4 for the area, and fly in to Denver or the area. thanks; please contact.

D.W. Dent "the Art of Timber Falling" will give you a good heads up on chainsaw. But since you've been running one for years and years, you've been lucky. It's a nasty tool in the best of circumstances. In confined areas, such as your accident, try to give the saw a way out, and your leg. Legs are scarce, I understand. Youve only got two. I like stump grinders, but they're costly.

location. Due to location and other information it's very difficult to answer building envelope questions without know your location. It's critical. If it's a habitable dwelling, code would vary; i.e. the coast in the NW is a "hygro=thermal" zone and information about envelope does not apply compared to other areas. Need to know.

Canada bailed on the penny two years ago; it's all good. I'm old enough to remember the LARGE copper pennies my grand dad and parents gave me, and it's just a unit of measurement. It passes. I remember when the quarter made the move to partial, and then no silver USA. We'll survive. We'll move on.

I bred a "mini" cow out of my Milking Shorthorn once, bred A.I. to a Carnation Simmental bull (both animals peak at over 1100 lb. cows easily.
For some strange reason I got the smallest Frame 3 out of 10 score cow you've ever seen. I then bred her, believe it or not, to a Simmental
Fullblood bull and she threw......a small calf. I really should have just gone into the mini business. It was bigger money than the big cattle.

She calved, lil one, unassisted. I sold her shortly after with the calf. I wish I had kept photos.

Mini wise I'd pretty much stay away from them for all kinds of reasons, mainly genetic. But I understand that in Montana there are some really
progressive breeders that have "cleaned up" the genetics in small Herefords, for example. Dairy wise you've got dairy. That's all. If you're looking
for a small cow they're around, and you can view them in person, then buy.
