Apparently they are hard to catch when they start their troublemaking ways too.

...and a weasel is something slightly different here - smaller than a stoat.

I used to vacation in northern California every summer and they had minks that would take down ducks that were 4 or 5 times their size. Pretty impressive (well... not if you are a duck).

Not sure what that is. Here's a guide to distinguishing stoats from weasels - maybe that will give you an idea?

We have lots of possums, and occasional skunks and raccoons.


Normally our worst threats are hawks, owls and neighbor dogs running loose.

OK, just looked up fisher cat - those are bigger but they're members of the same family (mustelids) and are native to north America so I'm less likely to see one

I think they are all in the same family. Fisher cats are larger.

Presumably owls would take chicks but not your full grown birds?

Probably a good thing. Apparently they are nasty boogers.

Thing2, midway through that video (after all the "playing") you will see the chase begin and the narrator explain. I stopped watching when he caught it. I don't like to see those things.

Yes. Most of my chickens are bantam (mini chickens) so they can pretty much grab them all. I have to keep them all in covered pens.


The ducks are safer once they are grown just because they are bigger. It might be fun trying to see a hawk or owl trying to lift one of my 16lb big boy drakes though. haha

It's not a horribly gory one (and that narrator is a national treasure, BTW ). I think it's fascinating how utterly unconcerned the other rabbits seem to be.

That's why Things are "DD sisters!" It's a special connection, and you two will be FINE! Just breathe! You'll be getting comments, but it takes time. Lydia will display it on the Home Page, but give her time. Lots of graphic work and other things behind the scene. And once our Fan Club members see it on the Home Page, they will go. But it takes a few days...it will be fine. We've all been there, us Dirty Girls! Welcome! 15 minutes to go! Woohoo!

That's good...he sounds good. And I was surprised to see how the other rabbits seemed unconcerned too!

It's gorgeous for the first three hours. Then it's just busy city mulit-lanes. I'm actually taking some colouring with me ... never done it in the car before, but I'm going to give it a whirl. See what happens.

This is my favorite big guy. His name is Sausage. He's like a dog. Sweet and wags his tail.

Ha ha, phobia.
No, not phobia. I've just learned my lesson the hard way. There really aren't any good ones in my town. My daughter is the bet! Got hired by a prestigious salon right out of hair dressing school where she graduated in the top three.
I'm not one of those parents who brags about their kids.

That sounds like a fun trip and a good excuse for a great hairdresser visit! My best friend visits her sisters in Orlando and always has her hair done there too. She goes to my hairdresser as well most of the time, but she really loves the one in Orlando.

I hope you'll have fun. As to coloring in the car, well...hope you can!

Yep, it would be a brave owl that took on something that size! He's a fine looking creature!

Wow, that's wonderful! You can brag on her all you want! BTW, your galleries are no longer there. Lydia is working her MAGIC! Less than 10 minutes now!
