Monday

Pig Wrestling

     Ok then, that was a learning experience.  If you think we fought with them and got them on the truck -- think again.  They are still here.  The closest we got was the front feet in the trailer.  Two young men came with a nice rig with a 1 1/2 foot step in.  The pig pen was downhill from the truck which made the step higher yet.  They "forgot" their piece of plywood for a ramp.  Well......I didn't have any around.  There was no way a bucket over the head and back them in would work with that high of a step.  I thought Pinky was going to die of heat stroke so I said, "how bout you come next Mon. with your equipment, and I move the cage to an uphill position from the truck by then."  They only pick-up on Monday's.  So, next Monday it is.

     And this has never happened in a very long time to me.  I grabbed my camera for pictures and the battery was dead.  Well, this has been an interesting morning.!!!!!

    



If they were this small we could have just picked them up :-)

well, at least you've got a whole week to prepare for round 2 (and hopefully the final round!)

The bucket will work, but not with a step up! Good luck next week! They might be on to you : )

We have the same problem when we try to get the goat boys in the trailer only they aren't as big as your pigs!

I've heard it's not easy to load a pig!

Pigs are smart. They don't want to leave. :)
