A stag beetle?http://bugguide.net/node/view/148126Lisa H.
YUCK!!!! Abby, your farm is coming along nicely!! I love the goats and sheep. Are the goats for milking? and the sheep?? Asher looks like a doll in that box by the way! He's beautful!Lovin the updates,diana
The goats are for milking. Unless one of them gets pretty hefty before the fall, I will not be able to breed them for another year, wanting to keep their health a priority. I love them. They are so sociable. I would like to mess with sheep's milk as well, but their prime use right now is planned for wool. We will see where things go. If a nice mini ram comes up for sale, then I might breed them, but I am pretty picky. Their fleece is incredible soft right now, and I don't want to make it coarse breeding it with the wrong ram.
Yep, it's a stag beetle.
I welcome hospitable, intelligent discussion. I do not welcome mean-spirited comments. Though they are "moderated" I post pretty much everything, with a very, very small exception-that being spam and those who aim to hurts others intentionally. I'd love hear what you have to say, otherwise!
