Jennies and Westerns

I've long been a fan of western novels and short stories. But mostly I've only read Elmore Leonard. For some reason, I've never read anything by Louis L'Amour. I intend to remedy that oversight in short order.

Part of what got me thinking about westerns and what led me to remembering that I've never read anything by Louis L'Amour and that I need to is this week I had lunch with some wonderful ranchers here in Texas.

They explained to me something quite fascinating: if you own a trip of goats, and if you have a problem with predators attacking and eating some of your goats, you can get a jenny (a female donkey), and the jenny will basically adopt the goats and guard them from predators. These ranchers told me that they had a lot of trouble with coyotes and/or bobcats killing their goats, but that after they got a jenny not even the family dog could get close to the goats (the jenny would attack it and run it off).

I like to learn.

Don't forget to support Ron Paul's candidacy for President of the U.S.A.

Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I
was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
