The boys are here! A pair of Tamworth/Old Spot crosses. It's been hard finding pigs this spring but farming friends Ejay and Kim got a hold of a whole farrowing and saved two for me. We met at a fairgrounds between both our farms yesterday and did the hand off. They had a big van and I had my truck. It didn't take long to swap the shoats from the two vehicles and we had a few minutes of catching up before they were on their way to help a friend get in her spring planting and I was back home to prepare for the 45 chicks arriving the next day. All of a sudden this place is exploding with animals! Pigs, chickens, and a goose about to hatch a clutch of goslings (I hope). The ride home was good and steady. Gibson was rolling shotgun and bluegrass on the radio. Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday afternoon.
I'm off to get those chicks from the post office and get them set up in the barn. Enjoy your Thursday, friends! And if you want to join in on the fun, over on my facebook page we are having a naming contest. Throw in your ideas!
