Pig Check In Day At The Fair
(This photo is of last year's fair pigs, "Cracker" and "Barbie")
I'm up extra early on this Saturday morning as it is "Pig Registration" day at our local livestock fair. The actual fair will take place in March, but 4H and FFA kids were there Friday for the steer "weigh in".
After this post and a cup of coffee, I will be waking up Kate and Jr. for the task of wrangling their two new show pigs up into the truck for a ride to the fair. At the fair, the pigs will get an identifying eartag and be duly registered. Then it's home to be pampered for a few months before the fair competition.
This year's pigs are so new, we don't have solid names for them yet, but I predict we will by the end of the day.
They're pretty cute. I will get some photos up as soon as I can.
