    We used bottled milk when I was a kid. Then we moved next to a farmer and he gave us fresh milk before he separated and pasteurized it. I used Esbilac on my raccoons.

    Goats I am assuming?

    If you feed a young squirrel cows milk only it will die rather quickly even if you pump them full of probiotics. They are very lactose sensitive.

    Regular old moo juice, worked fine. A friend’s mother used to raise baby animals for the county. She said the secret was taking a damp, warm cloth and wiping their bottom. It stimulates them to poop. Like the mother licking them. If you didn’t wipe, they wouldn’t poop and in a couple days die. She got me hooked on raising orphan raccoons, and using esbilac. Did that till the county started regulating raising wild animals, and requiring rabies shots.

    182/106 is a huge blood pressure number. That is a number that needs to be taken seriously and worked with beyond just medication to lower. Pulse of 111 is also high unless you were working while they were taking it.

    High blood pressure makes it very difficult to regulate body temperature and can cause internal bleeding. Renal damage and even failure can occur because of high blood pressure, especially in temperature extremes. Heart attack and stroke are the results that get the headlines but kidney, liver, eye, lung and/or colon damage will stop you in your tracks. That residue on your chair could be salt or could also be salt and glucose from a diabetic reaction to high blood pressure.

    Invest the time and money to get your blood pressure and pulse down so you can continue to do what you enjoy doing.

    Indeed.
    Part of my issue is personality but my lifestyle needs a drastic change.
    I have been hypertensive all my life. It is much better since donating blood though. I have to donate again, calm myself a little, cease stimulants, and follow a stricter protocol with my bp meds.

    The second crack I show was a fresh one.
    The only reason this tree didn't barber chair and explode was the strap.

    I am getting sloppy though. I usually use 2-3 straps.

    There is a saying in the tree business “ Work Alone, Die Alone”! Did My last climbing job at the age of 64!

    I don't know how you did it that long. My respect.

    Between body mass and arthritis I feel like I get less capable every year.

    Also climbed and took down this ash tree.
    Ground stump.

    No access to vehicles because people dont forsee needing a truck in their yard and build cheap small gates.

    Carry out was wonderful. Patron paid extra because he is a great guy.

    You were right and I just learned something.

    I have read hundreds of articles on baby squirrels and all said cows milk would kill them.

    You are just supposed to boil it.
    Thats pretty incredible.

    This guy explains how they tried to pull his rehab license over him telling people they can use cows milk that has been boiled.

    We have always raised squirrels on powdered sheep milk as we always have some kicking around. The trick is to start them on a very dilute solution like 10% milk to 90% water and work your way up gradually to full strength on consecutive feedings. Most “abandoned” critters arrive severely dehydrated so the water is essential. I have raised way too many squirrels.

    Bradford pears have taken a lot of crap but I like them.
    If a compeetent person tends them yearly they are gorgeous. Yes they are expensive and dont last forever but I look at them like hedges.

    A guy that has perfect hedges and bradford pears has got his stuff together. Having your stuff together means constant attention.

    We have a tremendous problem in Georgia with invasive bradford pear seedlings.

    I've seen several bradfords with serious fire blight this year. It got me to thinking they may spur widespread fire blight that could impact fruit tree production.

    The only good I have to say about bradford pears, is that they chip good and the firewood isn't bad.

    Nvm...
    I just found my problem.

    I have a customer with cedar hawthorn rust on his cedars pears and apples.
    I was unaware it could affect bradford pears.
    I now have his solution and will be taking care of it the same time as his bagworms.

    My thought exactly when I saw that strap. Looks a little feeble against the diameter of the tree - I do multiple winds until the tail end is used up.
