Biography:
My name is John and I currently serve in the Royal Canadian Air Force doing ATC. I recently bought a 5.5 acre hobby farm in Northern Ontario with my sweetheart and started our own hobby ranch. We have 2 horses which are race horses used for Western Gaming, and a goat which we hope to one day breed and milk. In the summer we keep meat chickens and turkeys, and recently we acquired ducks and geese we want to breed and keep as egg layers. We incubate a lot of our own eggs and we used to raise quail but recently are taking a break from them. We run a medium size rabbitry with new zealand and california breeding stock, and we recently got some show class birds, A guinea fowl hen and couple baby hens, and a frizzle hen. We love silkies and our pride is our-up and coming-naked neck silkie stock.

In the early spring this year when everything was still melting, we had a fox come and kill 8 of our almost laying hens, 2 roosters, and 2 muscovy ducks. Devastated and heart broken after all the time, love and money invested in our birds, we almost gave up raising birds all together for the year... However I had a plan.

So I starting looking for a LGD to help keep our poultry/goat/horses safe from predators as I live pretty much in the middle of the woods and I knew that there was coyotes even possibly wolves around at times. I managed to find a great Pyrenees/Maremma cross for a good price, already raised from a baby outside on the farm. My lady is a RVT (registered vet tech) so I was able to get him all his shots and blood work for a very good price to make sure he was healthy.

So here I am, learning as I go and training my first LGD.
