This morning Nate went out and got hit by a skunk. So we know spring is almost here.
Eugene was pruning the old apple tree by the pond and heard a splash in the water and saw Nate swimming in almost freezing water. Nate go out and Eugene came down off of the ladder and discovered Nate had been perfumed by a skunk and was trying to swim the odor away. That was not working for him so Eugene poured some hydrogen peroxide into a bucket of water (a cup of peroxide to a gallon of water) and hit all the stinky areas with the solution. Peroxide neutralizes skunk odor on contact so dogs getting into it with a skunk is not a reason to panic here at Boulder Belt Eco-Farm
