Re: Ideal weight for hibernating my Hermann

Thanks so much Nina. I was only referring to the post/link mentions to the talks on this forum. I didn't realise they were on You Tube. I'll go take a look now!!

Thanks again for all your help, advice and support.

Re: Ideal weight for hibernating my Hermann

Hi Nina Thanks so much for your reply and thank you even more for recreating your original reply, I hate it when that happens!!
