Livestock leads and pet leashes

Available for sale, custom orders accepted

I can see why retractable leashes and leads have an appeal. Sometimes you are walking with a no-nonsense animal that just walks with you and you give them more lead, other times you need your animal close up to you for training or if a whole groups of kids on bikes are oncoming (I’ve seen my kids ride their bikes, I know it looks like a pack of wild wolves coming straight at you). But the plastic feel of retractable pieces of flimsy fabric really doesn’t do it for me. So I set out to find an alternative…

We make and sell these leashes, as it’s the only type that have worked well for us.

They have steel rings evenly spaced along the length of the rope with clips on both ends. The rings make this leash adjustable, and they also double as plastic doggie bag holders.

The rope is made of braided strands of paracord. The length is approximately 6′ total.

You can order the items pictured here, or we can custom make one for you.

Baby Chicks

This adventure started with a plan to have 10 chickens. However, the minimum order from the hatchery was 15, so we went with that…10 females, 5 straight run Easter Eggers. Honestly, I figured a few wouldn’t make it, and we’d still have a good number.

The hatchery sent us a few extra chicks to keep the others warm, and wouldn’t you know it…they all survived, and we love all 18 of them!
