Yeah It Worked.....




The goat that was limping and the one with a broken leg I wrapped them with a epsom salt, lavender and a few other things thrown in for good measure rag secured with Pretty yellow duct tape!! LOL.. One had almost all swelling gone still limping occasionally but acting better!! Other one swelling has went down but of course his leg was broke.... SO yeah!!!
Here is the little Red Wattle boar that will be coming to the farm in October!










Here are my girls drawing yesterday Out of the reach of the horses who interfere with everything! I know our neighbors think we are weird!! LOL. When it flooded the girls went down in the field and were wading in it After it calmed down of course!! But they had found crawdads! So they were happy! They snuck them into the aquarium!! Little turtles ate the smaller one but the bigger one is living in a rock pile.... Anyways the neighbors dad pulled in and Kyle was down there and he said..." Umm do you all know there are 2 kids playing in the water down the road?..." Kyle laughed said Yep that would be MINE!! It wasnt a road it was our drive......




They also took the canoe out on the pond! They love that thing! Its nice of the neighbor to let us use it Maybe tax time we should get a boat for them....













This morning the pigs almost had lamb for breakfast!!! One of the ram lambs got in with them and when I was trying to get him out he kept running to the pigs and the pig sniffed and sniffed him and then slowly placed her mouth around his leg. When I hollered no the pig jumped back! LOL Like she Knew better!!! They say pigs are smarter then dogs........... Here are 2 of the 3 we have right now. Miss Bossy Bacon is the taller one in front.
I am off to transplant some herbs and house plants......

Do you really think they're high enough for the horses not to get them? They're just high enough for the horses to be sure to see them! Unless of course the horses aren't in that pasture! Does make a great pix tho, twin girls on twin gateposts. Give 'em a lantern or something & tell them to strike (& hold) a pose! lol

BAD Bossy!!!! BAD BAD Bossy! MY lamb!! BAD BOSSY!

Your pigs are so cute! I am really enjoying following your blog. In the last photo, what kind of pigs are those and how old are they? Thank you!

Great pix! The girls are growing so fast!
I didn't realize that you had two goats with hurt legs! What are you going to do about the one with the broken leg?

I just took a good look at the plants in the pix of the pigs in the corral. There's a lot of pigweed in there! Those little oinkers need to get to work, so everyone else can move around & not get spiked!
