Winter finally showed up this last week. It’s teased us off and on here in the midwest, but lately it has decided to stay a little longer. A couple of weeks ago we got 3 inches of snow , this past Sunday night we got about 4 inches and it’s starting to snow again now. I am grateful however that we havent gotten as much as a lot of some parts of the country has.
Before the snow came, we were able to get the heifer bull (Winchester) out of the spring herd and back home. The rental property where that herd is on can be a little tricky to get in and out of, so while the ground was still froze Thursday morning, I went with Jonesy to help load the bull up.
We have been talking about getting a few hogs to raise for the freezer. So on Friday afternoon we got the old hog shed set up and ready for some piggys. The ground was still froze enough that it took a little work to get the pen put up. If you look close you can spot ranch dog Moe in the back ground “supervising”.
Here he is close up.
Back in the day (about 23 years ago) we farrowed 30 sows, had 500 baby pigs and 6 boars. That’s a whole blog post itself.
Anyhoo….I’m pretty excited to add to our little CBR family.
The rest of the critters seem to be handling the weather fine.
Even though some have frosty noses.
If you have been following along, then you know that Jonesy and I have our first grand baby coming in August. I can’t wait until we find out whether the baby is a boy or girl so I can start shopping! (The groan you heard was from Jonesy.) lol
But…..I saw these at our local farm store and could not pass them up!
How cute are these??!!!!!
Oh boy…being a grandma is going to be fun!
Until next time
