Ello from Devon
« on: September 11, 2008, 12:38:39 pm »
Hello Fellow land lovers!

I'm 29, female, living in Devon.

I have 8 chickens, 2 Angora goats, 2 Jacob/Texal Sheep, and 2 lovely cats. We also have a veg patch.

We currently rent a house which has an acre, the dream is to have our own someday. Would be nice to not have to ask permission if i want to do something.

I'm passionate about animal welfare using herbs and wildflowers. Ever since i was a small child i would be found outside crushing berries under a stone pretending to make potions.

Oneday i would love to have my own Holistic animal centre. I spend most of my spare time reading up on natural cures and medicines.

Not quite sure what else to write about myself. I hope this is suffice.

I look forward to hearing from you in the forums, i always have loads of questions.

Kind regards,

Redfox ;D

Hi

Welcome Redfox - I would be interested to read about some of your 'potions'.  I think the whole concept of what you do is really wonderful.  I would rather use natural products on our animals so hope you can find some time to tell us all about it sometime.
