Domestic culling event.

The domestic culling event on February 7th went well despite only two showing up at the scheduled time. Mynerva and Aoife milked cows and culled horses, cows and bulls for an hour and a half. It was decided to leave the event portal in place for the day so that others could participate throughout the day while Mynerva attended to real life events. Aoife, Morp, Golaruus and Kate continued the culling and also milked, sheared sheep and ran from trolls. Overall a very successful day.

Thank you to everyone that helped out. It has been making a difference in the variety of domestics and hostiles on the server and also seems to help with the lag.
