More pigs...

I wonder what he is thinking?  Could it be that he is looking for supper?  Or is he listening for his brother's squeal?  Or is he wondering what in the world is that thing she keeps putting up to her face?  How about  - so glad I got cleaned up before I hopped on the trailer -this could have been embarrassing.

A Little pile of Piggies!

A Medium Pile of Piggies !

A BIG pile of piggies!  Boy do they like to sleep close - I suppose to stay warm.

Set up on the lane

Cousins were here and we walked all the heifers at once.  Haley and Brandon will be coming to the show too. It can be interesting at the first show.  My mom wasn't too happy that I was wearing shorts.  I did wear a had and heavy coat though. It was cold.

First cattle show this week.

Yup we have our first cattle show this week. And it is snowing. They have been acting really good - so glad we worked with them last summer and fall.  Andrew even got the blower out and blowed the snow off of them.  Hoping the sun will come out by show day.

Sleds have many uses

Yikes it April and we still have snow!  We have not had school for two days. But we still have some chores to do.  We got some pigs a week ago and they are pretty little so we need to give them plenty of straw to cuddle up in with their buddies to stay warm.  So much easier to use the sleds to move the bales to the other barn.  We also use the sleds to move buckets of water for the cows that calve.  Plus we will have the chance to slide down the hills Dad just made.
