I've found a good suggestion from a vet. I would love him to be in my town but unfortunately he's in a country I can never reach.

For dogs , 45 mil of fractionated coconut oil and 5 mil of neem oil into a spray bottle to keep away ticks and fleas. For cats just spray the neck and a little into their shoulders... Places they can't reach

250K acres?!?!?
How many cattle? I KNOW it takes less than one acre to keep a cow in Illinois, but closer to 50 acres to keep one cow out west.
The boss keeps about 4000 head of mother cows. Fortunately, we have some amazing pastureland thanks to the water running off the Steens from constant snowmelt. (They are 10,000’ elevation and often have snow year round)

Those views are breathtakingly beautiful. 🥰

Beautiful pictures! Living there, how could anybody move to a city and live shoulder to shoulder?
I agree, but there are downsides…driving 50 miles down a rutted gravel road before hitting pavement to get to hospital because your mare body slammed you in the rocks while separating calves and broke all your ribs is one…no access to a PT is a big one…I could think of several more but I still couldn’t live in a city.
My home in Calif was ideal. Had my training barn, livestock, gardens but could get to store, Dr, and see friends family on a whim ☺️ But alas, one cannot “go home again”
