A lady I trained with had akelpie, it was a fun dog. They were usually across the training ring from us. We did quite a bit of things together. Also at herding training the trainer had a Helpie as one of her herd of dogs. The poor sheep had their wool run off them between our two dogs. The dog didn’t get along too well together. Aussies can be pretty vocal and both being female liked to “talk” a loti think Aussies are a bit more physical in their tactics. The big ram weighed300 pounds. I’m not a rancher and have not had much farm training myself. The ram was an only ornery critter and would not stay with the herd .the Kelpie would shag it all over to get him back. My Aussie took things into her own hands and pulled that ram right down to the ground and ripped about 5 pounds of wool out while the trainer was getting them apart. My gir came from a large ranch here in the states so was well used to cows and horses the big ram was a lot tamer aft that. . I had to regime her as I didn’t know how long I’d last after I got out of the hospital and none of the family was into dogs like I was. She went to the trainer from the training school so she went to a very good hom and is doing well. I gave a list of about 75 commands that she knew and used. My kitty is my house pet laying at my feet now.Byron
I had a kelpie and, being in Australia. this was the ideal dog for anywhere. GP dog. General -purpose, low-maintenance dog, Would run all day in any conditions.
My Valvata sits in my shed. I you were a little closer, we could do a deal. Yes, 55 gallons is a bit over the top and when I bought my 5 gals, that was much more than I'd ever use. I haven't checked, but I will look at Shell to see if it's still available.
I’ll continue looking into some other brands that had steam oil. This used to be a big rail area especially up north where the iron range is. Duluth is a large port on the Great Lakes. Klotz is a big name in two stroke stuff and has an oil with castor in it that I used in my Rc planes for a long time there is also an amzoil dealer not far away. Not had much luck with him however.
I just looked at the weather and we are supposed to get -17 deg F in a couple days so I’ll put the castor out on the deck overnight and see how it pours.
Thanks for the info.
I’m working on my boiler design.
