Sweater 101

On my web page, under Cool Links,

I have a link that will tell you:

How to make the sweater you want...
with the yarn you want...
and have it fit!

I have bought this ebook, and I have to say, it is everything the author says it is. I seldom push specific items, but when I do, you can bet they'll work as advertised, and this one does.

More on Purina Fibre 3

So, I got a couple of bags of the new feed, I mixed some with the last of the old formula and the bunns seem to like it just fine. What I decided to do is buy a richer hay mix to make up for the reduced protein content. Fortunately, the guy I buy hay from is a sort of "hay connoisseur", it's what he does for a living and he has several mixes available, all of which he grows himself. In a way, I think this may have worked out for the best, as the hay and the pellets are now more balanced in protein and fiber content, which is good for hind-gut health. OTOH, I'm now buying more expensive hay. So, I'm currently paying about twice as much now for pellets and hay than I was 3 years ago. Yet gas prices have gone down and stayed down...? Hmmm...

New Year's resolutions

Well, it's been an interesting year! It's had its ups & downs. After looking back, upon much reflection, and seeing the advice of a good friend being born out quite literally, I've decided to cut back on blogging, keep the content of my website down, and keep most of my current activity to myself. It seems there are people out there who troll my blog just to try to pick stuff out of it to deliberately misrepresent. And to think I was warned it was going to happen and I didn't quite believe it. I do now. Takes me awhile, but I do catch on eventually.

Lack of information works for other people, now I'm going put it to work for myself. :)

I'll still post the political stuff, and genetics, feed, health, and general care posts, but specifics of how and what I'm doing... I think not. I've developed a respectable local market for my goods, so I don't need to advertise much anymore. I've gone back in time, so to speak, and it's working for me. I'll still be promoting the things that work for me, and addressing the things that didn't, however. So stay tuned.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Purina Fibre3

Well, it seems Purina, in its infinite wisdom, has decided to alter the formulation of a perfectly good rabbit food to cater to pet owners. The protein in the formula has changed from 17% to 15%. I have not gotten any of the new feed yet, but I guess I need to decide what I'm going to do about it.

My feelings right now are that I'll just up the amount of Calf Manna in the grain treat I give a tiny bit. Either that, or add some ShowBloom to it.
