    I'm tired of the neighbors golden retriever digging my heads up from this years roar, yes they were fenced off, but the naughty bitch keeps on keepin on and break and enterin. Its now chewed the nose clean off my ten. CNUT!
    Then my dog goes and rolls in the rotten muck that's scruffed up.yuck! Mid winter hose bath for her in 3 degree weather!
    Anyhoo, I thought its time to get in and do it. View attachment 51682 View attachment 51683

    Add a bunch of water cress and a few spuds and who knows? It might taste OK. Ha ha ha ha I love boil up but I would let you have a go on that one first.

    Another few years and you'll be able to harvest him. Going by his antlers he's going to be a palm tree?

    Waterblast to get all remaining stuff off, allow to dry then paint with hydrogen peroxide and allow to dry. You can use bleach but that sometimes leaves a yellow tinge
