Crazy Busy!

Last week was crazy for us. I didn't get around to visiting your blogs as much as I would have liked to but hope to find a little time this week to do so. I miss keeping up with what is going on with all of you when I have a crazy busy week like last week.


Our pig barns have been empty for several weeks now so we have been doing some maintenance and repairs while we have had the "down time". A good friend of ours....Frank....has been working with us and has been a huge, huge help to us!


We got 2000 little feeder pigs in last Thursday. We got them all "checked in" on Friday and vaccinated yesterday (thanks to the kids and a few of their friends). Now we have a little bit of work to do to get the last barn ready to receive pigs next week.


We got quite a few loads of corn hauled last week too....nothing like multi-tasking around here!!


To top things off, my brother and his girlfriend came and spent a few days with us. They are probably regretting the timing of the visit because I did put them to work too (nothing like scaring you all off from ever visiting us). She is a huge animal lover and had a fun time helping us with the pigs.


Hopefully I can find some time to catch up with all of you this week.... if not, I am thinking about all of you!

Wowza - 2000 pigs? This little piggie poem would be really difficult. The 2000 pig went weeee weeee weeee all the way home but the other 1999 were mad that they had to wait so long.

Wow what a week. We sell our pigs as feeder pigs so we don't have all that kind of work to do. Good luck with them.

Love and Hugs,
Joyce

I'd love to help with the little piggies. A little work won't scare me away. But I am not, I repeat, am not coming to visit you unless you visit me first. It's about time, I've only lived here for nearly 17 years!

And we are thinking about you too Chris. I bet you are really ready for that Vegas trip now huh?
