New digs for Lou Lou

As some of you know, we will be having baby pigs very soon (like in 9-12 days). One of our show pigs from last year, Lou Lou, aka "the racehorse", has been growing, and growing, and growing. We have borrowed a farrowing (?) crate from Michael Jahns (thanks Michael), and have poured concrete in her shed. Here are some pictures of the boys working hard, getting it all evened out.

We have set up the crate inside the shed and have hooked up a mister to keep her cool and also put a fan out there for her. She is so uncomfortable. She sometimes doesn't even want to get up to eat. Make sure you come by to see the baby pigs in just a few weeks. Baby pigs are so cute. Then they get bigger and turn into eating and pooping machines. Hopefully there will be some good pigs in there that Abbie will be able to show at the stock shows next year in February and March. So I guess now we are officially pig farmers. Yay for us?

  1. Dude. If I was pregnant right now in the 110 degree heat, I don't think I'd want to move, either!
