Pigs in a Row

I woke up this morning with a big back problem, unable to work here today as i could hardly take a deep breath . I was going to soak in the bath but once i got down the hallway and stood over it i didn't think i would even be able to get in lol. Well not funny cause the work here even at feed time requires me to be fit. I couldn't remember hurting myself yesterday as everything I did was pretty well normal work. Pushed a few over filled wheel barrows up the manure pile or was it when i grabbed the 50 lbs of feed out of the bin? I figured it out after i mixed the pelleted feed for the pigs tonight and went to lift the garbage pail i mix it in to pour into the buckets. I really need either a portable cement mixer or a grain silo . My neighbor has an unused one next door, i wonder what he would want to part with it. Of course then i would have acquire a recipe for the feed, some one to mill it and then deliver . Why does everything have to be a can of worms?? A few pictures of tonight and a movie of Soda's herd. Oh and of course that is my Rose with her little pink scooper open expecting treats not me taking pictures.

cuuuute piggly wiggly's! I love pigs, and I'm not one of those people who says she loves pigs and then sits down to a breakfast plate of bacon. NO PORK for me! Their little tails wagging around are sooo cute!

It's humbling to discover via your videos that your pigs are better behaved at feeding time than our dogs. I mean, our nuts are jumping, whining, bumping, pushing - all in the name of excitement (of course!)
while your pigs take it all in stride and with the best of manners.

Anyway, I loved the vids!
