What is this bug?

He was easily longer than an inch. He sat on the boat cover for a few days. It looks like it is some sort of beetle, but what, we don't know. Do you?


  1. A stag beetle?

  2. 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,


  3. 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.


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!
