Unity Town News
In My World
Scout’s doing much better since her pancreatitis diagnosis. Gypsy managed to get skunked. I put her in the sink immediately and used dish soap and then used a product with accelerated hydrogen peroxide. She wasn’t sprayed too bad, and it all came out. The geese were finally harvested. It’s so much more peaceful without them. Next are the ducks, and lastly, the pigs. Bill has experience butchering deer and I’m hoping that after watching a few YouTube videos, we’ll be able to butcher the pigs ourselves. Confidence is half the battle, right?
