Sitting here, its raining away, so my mind is rambling away.
Another thing I never knew existed. Feed stores. Now when you think of feed stores you might think of chicken, horse, cow, pig food. They do have cat and dog food too, and at pretty good prices sometimes on certain things.
I have changed feed stores three times now. When we first moved here I went to Haneys over in Rockmart. Went there for a long time, friendly enough, helpful enough. They went up four dollars all at once on the Mini Pig food. OUCH. With gas prices going up, the chicken feed was crawling upwards too. So I ventured out and found a new feed store. It is about fifteen minutes from here in Rome. They are really especially nice folks. I could usually get most of what I needed there. On a few occasions I had to make a side trip to Tractor Supply for three way scratch (a blend of cracked corn, millet and wheat usually) because they would be out. Then they too went up on their scratch, and the feed.
So my search was on again. I think I have finally found the perfect place to go for all our livestock needs.
Tractor Supply Company is a wonderful place.
If you have never been to one, go. They dont just have animal feed, they have stuff for the men to ogle over..tools, garden, all kinds of stuff. They have toys for girls and boys, they have stuff for the ladies. Boots, hats, nice country wear clothing.
The manager of the one I go to in Rome, well we have something in common. We love our Dodge trucks. He has a big ole deisel and I have the viper truck. He is always so nice when I come in. I dont know if its the truck, or all the dadgum feed I buy. I have to make a grocery list just to go to the feed store sometimes! LOL
List for this week:
Mini Pig food, three way scratch, layer crumble, dry dog food (Diamond Lamb and Rice), Derbys vitamins, and Rabbit Chow.
A usual list consists of Pig food, Scratch, and Layer, and sometimes chick starter, for my three babies.
So there is another part of life that is country as opposed to my old city dwelling days.
I love the country, could never go back to city dwellin'. :)
