and then he got impaled on a fence

Richard Ramirez may also have been deeply affected by the death of his best friend, Nicholas Nevarez, in a gruesome traffic accident in 1980,               Eddie Gonzales said. Ramirez was in the back seat when a van driven by another friend crashed into a fence, he said. "the guy got impaled…” that pole went right through the guy, he saw the whole thing, i think maybe that accident had a lot to do with it.“

During the past months I did a lot of research regarding Richard. The things I found I saved in a kind of “working timeline” , that I want to share with you today. It is far from being complete and it contains also events regarding other people in Richards life and details which maybe are not very relevant, but I saved them anyway, bc. they helped me to structure my research. This timeline contains also crimes, Richard was suspected to have committed them, but was never charged of them, or charges were dropped bc. of lack of evidence. These crimes are written in cursive. The sources for this timeline are mostly old newspaper-articles. I tried to avoid the known documentaries and Philip Carlos book.

Why do we disbudded/dehorn?

A few days ago, I made a post about the difference between horned and polled animals, and I mentioned disbudding and dehorning. Here are some of the reasons why we disbud/dehorn our goats.

Before starting, I want to again clarify the terms. Disbudding means to remove the horns before they are connected to the skull, usually before the horns even break through the skin. Dehorning means to remove the horns after they have connected to the skull and the horns have broken the surface of the skin. In 99% of the cases with the goats we chose to, we disbud them. This is done at 10-14 days after being born. On to our reasons!

1. For our safety. Goat horns can grow to be really weird looking and are surprisingly sharp at the end. My mom and I like to play ‘Count the Bruises’ when we feed the goats. While I don’t have any pictures of our bruises, I can say that they were nasty and huge. The Boer goat horns tend to curve tightly around their skull, so the risk of real injury isn’t as much as with the dairy goats. With the dairy goats, they’re horns grow odd. Alpine horns grow straight up for a while before they start to curve. Nubian horns curve out to the side. Even when they’re young, Boer goat horns are pointed. Accidents can happen and goat horns can cause injuries.

^^^ Alpine with horns

^^^^ Nubian with horns

^^^^^ Boer with typical horns

2. For the other goats and that goat’s safety. Although I have never had a goat seriously injured by another goat’s horns, I have heard stories about horns impaling other goats or causing serious wounds. Even though he wasn’t impaled, our younger buck had some pretty serious bruises on him from when he got in a fight with the older buck (he broke through the fence while we were at work and school). I have, however, seen what happens when a goat gets trapped because of their horns. One of our up and coming show goats got her horns stuck in the feeder as a baby and in her panic, choked herself to death. The same thing happened to another up and coming show goat that had already been sold. There’s nothing more sickening than to find a dead goat hanging from the feeder and then have to tell the little girl who bought her that she needs to come out and pick a new goat because hers has died. One of my duties after school was to get out and check to make sure no one was stuck in the fence line. A friend of mine had a goat get stuck in the fence over night and the neighborhood predators thought she was a tasty snack…

3. Convenience. Dairy goats are the goats that are most often disbudded/dehorned because of how close people work with them and for the reason that the milk stand’s can’t accommodate horns on a goat. Not having horns makes life easier for the goat and for us because we are around them so much. Also for market goats (4H and FFA show goats), some fairs have a maximum horn height (often less than 1 inch). This is for the safety of the non-ag people that come to visit their fairs. My fair does not have that requirement.

So what do we do to our herd?

To start, we’re a mixed herd. We have both Boer goats (meat) and dairy goats (Nubian and Alpine). The man who I work with closely and owns the majority of the Boer goats started the policy for the herd of ‘If 1 has them, they all do.’. But wait, you say, didn’t I mention disbudding and dehorning our goats? We do. We disbud all of our dairy goats as they live in a differnt pasture than our Boer goats. For our Boer goats, we sell to 4H and FFA kids for their fair market goats. Those are most often wethers, but if we have girls that we don’t want to keep for breeding, they get sold too for that purpose. Even though our home fair doesn’t have a maximum horn requirement like other fairs, our goats go to various different counties and sometimes even to different states. I think the winner for our farthest traveling goat was to Montana. Therefore, all of our wethers get disbudded so they can be bought by any 4H or FFA kid. The girls we don’t disbud because we don’t know if we want to keep them until they are weaned.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask!

anonymous asked:

Adoribull, the first night they sleep together- just sleeping, rather than getting busy.

Dorian’s on-edge the entire time, almost expecting Bull to suddenly slip his hand down his pants or something because there’s no way this can just be cuddling and talking and spending time relaxing together. It was Bull’s idea to just spend the day inside, since it’s been pouring all day, winter falling into spring and making it all slushy. He’s never done this sort of thing, just laid in bed with someone with no ulterior motives.

Bull’s just chattering away next him, feeling the fact that Dorian’s in his arms. They’ve spent a lazy afternoon together once, between marathon sex sessions, and sometimes were too tired after returning from outings to do anything but crash. But he knows this is different and special for Dorian, no one ever just wanting to lay and be with Dorian because they liked him.

Bull does everything he can to make Dorian relax, make him laugh. He blows a raspberry into his neck and tells stupid jokes (What’s brown and sounds like a bell?) and finally gets Dorian to settle fully against him. Dorian tells Bull a story about how Tevene fairytales say the Frostbacks are a massive dragon slayed in battle, because he knows that’ll make Bull happy in return.

Eventually, Dorian’s breath evens out and slows as he drifts asleep, Bull mumbling against his skin about how he got some of his scars (battle slavers, impaled by a fence post, falling down a hill into some brambles and one getting infected). Bull’s happy that Dorian trusts him enough to stay and fall asleep in his arms.
