    Default Homemade kibble

    Today is day one of just straight homemade kibble for ALL the dogs. They seem to really enjoy it although as I type this Skye is looking for some gas masks. I made two batches of beef and one of chicken. Almost everything came from here on the Ranch except the rice (looking into trying to grow some this year), and is completely organic. I'll keep you all informed. Right now we have Gracie, a standard Yorkie, a tea cup Yorkie, a weenie dog, an English springer mix, a 15 year old chihuahua, and a Siamese rag doll cat who thinks he's a dog. Plenty of diversity for our little experiment lol.

    Pleased to have your input on the home made kibble, thank you for sharing with us.

    I seem to have much in common w/you & Skye-was married for 12 yrs to a guy from
    Jackson, Ms, we drag raced funny cars & drag boats all over MS, TX & LA, lived in McComb
    for 1 yr, then divorced him & moved to Dallas. Have owned a Springer Spaniel, Pecos...great
    dog! I am thinking of putting raised beds in my back yard to raise organic veggies and maybe
    a few chickens. Changing my diet to mostly grain free, sugar free, & going organic 2 yrs ago
    has greatly improved my life-wished I'd done this yrs ago. As I've said, I grew up a military
    brat and like you, people have difficulty guessing WHERE I'm from, my accent is a little bit this
    and that, lol

    Have really enjoyed your posts & input here...GOD bless!

    RIP beloved boy.

    Thank you for the kind words. I enjoy meeting new people who share the same love we do. Any group of people who join together for a specific reason will always have a feel of comradery about it. Spending as many years as we have in the Army kind of makes need to have that feel around us. That's why we are members of a motorcycle club, that's why we are active participants in the Patriot Guard Riders. That's why we sought out other EB skin parents. The knowledge of a collective of people is far superior than just one. And the joys, laughs, and support it difficult times is also superior. I also feel that we might have a lot more in common than just the Military and our Bullies. Usually one common interest is a gateway to many more. Skye and I bought this place about eight years ago knowing we wanted to try to be as independent as we could when we retired. We rented it out until last year when we finally got our discharge orders. Since then we've planted a decent amount and variety of crops, raise chickens both for eggs and meat, have a dairy cow which yields about two gallons of milk a day, two calves, which are in rotation for slaughter, three pigs, and some goats. We live in an old, small community and do a lot of bartering (I trade eggs for wheat flour etc). And if someone has knowledge or the time and ability to help someone out, we jump right in. That's one of the things I like about EBN. It feels like an actual (not online) community. But if you can start doing it, get off the grid. It's nice to know you don't have to rely Wal-Mart to feed you lol. Besides....there's no way I could afford to feed this family if I had to pay the going rate of food lol. But I will keep you posted on this. I'm kinda new to this organic/raw dog food thing and sometimes I feel like I'm blind. But I hope that my observations and posts will help someone who's trying the same thing.
