This might help:
FF = first freshner
DH = dear Husband
DD = dear daughter
DS = dear son

DE = diatomaceuos earth
MIL = mother in law
FIL = father in law

BTW = by the way

Anyone want to add any others :)

HC I think means barber pole worm, (scientific name which I am not going to even attempt to spell.) that really got me one time on a thread. I read and read and read again till I finally figured it out....I think....someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

:) My favorites are:

IMHO (In my humble opinion)
FWIW (for what it's worth) and
YMMV (your mileage may vary - used not about cars, but to clarify that everyone has different experiences)

Those are forum-wide - for goats you'll see:

BOSS (Black oil sunflower seeds)
Bo/Se - Selenium/vitamin E shots - not sur ethe actual "BO" part of BO/Se

And I'm sure I'll think of more, later.

Yep-- Haemonchus Contortus. Barber Pole - or blood sucking stomach worm. :)

Community Supported Agriculture. Where members of the community 'buy into' the farm, offering monetary support and regularly receive produce in return.

Well then, how about:

ADGA - American Dairy Goat Association
USBGA - United States Boer Goat Association
ABGA - American Boer Goat Association
IBGA - International Boer Goat Association
LOL - Laugh out loud
ROFL - Roll on floor laughing

I was really stumped about the BOSS for a while. I thought it was some sort of superior pelleted goat feed or something. Now I have BOSS in our feed!! LOL

Thank you all so very much! I think I spend more time trying to figure out what everything means then I do typing and I am a wordy person ( as most of you already know ) tee hee hee And Ditto on the BOSS, I have gone on searches trying to find out what kind of great thing it is that my goats are not getting... I thought I was depriving them. They do have BOSS in there goat mix though, now that I know what it is. LOL

BBL - Be back later


:)

It's even wilder when you add in that "first freshener" is largely a dairy goat term.

ff around here means.. No one allowed in the milk room moms milking one of those Crazy FF's no loud noises no sudden movement, no distractions. No common sence. Used in the sentence "be carefull she's a ff!" you got to know where your hands and her feet are at all times ! lol!

Well, they always say the first step is admitting you have a problem... :p

Hello, my name is Paula and I am a Craigslist junkie. I don't usually buy anything, just read the ads. My husband calls it Paula porn.

And to the original poster, no worries, I bet most of us (myself included) went along with the abbreviations in hopes that some of the text would elude to what the person typing meant. DH took me a long time....I didn't know who on earth they were referring to.

Oh holy crap - you stop at looking? What on earth are you waiting for???

Things I have gotten from Craigslist
*Diesel Datsun Truck (This belongs to DH, actually - to use that acronym for the first time)
*Three longorn cows (we are boarding them - didn't actually buy them)
*Lawn tractor
*Sickle bar mower
*Crazy shed-on-a-trailer contraption that I plan to milk goats in (pre-wired for electricty -- it's nutty!)
*Wine fridge that will become my cheese cave
*Crazy dog named Matilde

I also send my husband at least 3 listings a day in an email titled, "Can we?Please?" - I get shot down a lot. The house that was only 12,000 if you move it yourself was my favorite. That and three turkey poults that were 100 miles away.

...seriously, Paula - start buying stuff. You won't regret it. :)

Posted earlier was bo/se and they knew it was selenium but didn't know what the bo part was..
bo/se is bovine selenium. Very few drugs are made for goats. We use those for cattle and adjust the dosage accordingly.
