Fair starts 1 week from today! Wow the summer is flying by. We are frantic with record books, trying to fatten the pigs all we can, keeping them cool, shaving them, and getting everything else ready to get to the fair. These are a few shots I took this weekend of the kids working with their projects.
Look really close and you can see 4 kids walking their pigs with Caribou Mountain in the background. Grandpa Stoor was finally able to cut the hayfield behind the house and we have walked the pigs every night since.
Mara training her pig - It's her last year and I'm sad, but for some reason she doesn't feed too bad!
Megan is headed back to the barn with the 3 little piggies.
Doesn't Shelby look excited???
Oh man, does a walk ever make you tired? They dig a hole in the dirt and plop in a hurry after their jaunt in the hayfield. Life is rough when your only three responsibilities are to eat, walk, and gain weight. By the way - we will be in big trouble at the fair this year when the fair board sees that we have named our pigs after them: Patsy, Davey, Delvy, Joey, Sandy, and Keithy - sorry Jim - we with think of you next year!
