Looks like you had a good trip to the fair. Those piggys look cute in their pen in the back of the truck.

Doubleknot,
Cute they are...even at over 200 pounds.

Tmart,
Thanks buddy. Wish you were pigging with us.

Those are some clean and beautiful looking pigs. How do you keep them clean in the motel room, or do you have to hose them down again before Monday's show?

Good luck in the competition.

I did want to point out to anyone that would be wondering. I know around here the pigs can't come home again because of diesase issues. Once they've left your farm and have intermingled with other pigs they have to go to market. And I know the pig farmers that introduce new stock into a barn must totally disinfect the entire place. It's a very time consuming and hard process.

Zanne,
They are getting a shave today to accent their cut physiques and a final wash tomorrow right before the showring.
Good point about the pig contact rules. The farm they came from doesn't allow visitors for that very reason.
