Well, It looks like we're in the pig biz for the next 5 months. We picked up the kids' 4-H piggies this weekend and they are cute as a button!
Meet "Hank", named after the infamous and ever popular "Hank the Cowdog". He's our son's 4-H pig. And below is the lovely"Miss Beulah". She belongs to our oldest daughter. Beulah is the Collie that Hank the Cow dog is madly in love with.
There's also a pretty old hymn called "Beulah Land" that we sing in church on occasion, but my guess is that no-one's ever heard of it.
Bad picture of the kids, I know, but it was the only one where the pigs weren't on the go.
We spent the next day building a temporary pen for the little cuties, and I think they're diggin' their new pad.
Today, we hauled Jake up near the house for the summer, and that old man has clearly never seen anything of the swine variety in all of his days. First, he trotted back and forth in front of their pen with ears in full alert.
Then his curiosity got the best of him and he went over to investigate the creatures that were making those weird noises.
Here they are making formal introductions. A sniff from Jake, a grunt from Miss Beulah, and the two became fast friends.
Jake is saying, "I've got my eye on you peculiar little creatures."
This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship!
