Jim and Lee Out For the Day!

Full Moon! (This would be Anna's pig's famous trip - laying down)
Ella's hand (literally) at photography.
Maddie always wants to be included. So far: no fights!
No, Anna, you cannot just stand there and watch your pig.
Now you got it!
We finally got the courage to let the pigs out of their pen, into the yard, to walk them. I have to say that I do much better with animals that are on leashes and you can pull them around! The girls named them Jim and Lee after Chris's bosses at Haycock's . I'm not sure how the bosses feel about this, but the pigs are adjusting to their new names quite well! Anna's pig has the disposition of Anna: it likes to walk around, gets very tired, and then lays down and is DONE! Where Emma's is just like her - on the GO! Here are some pics of us walking the pigs tonight. And doesn't Chris make a nice pig farmer although he keeps telling me he is NOT a pig farmer, but a cattleman!

Thanks for the pictures!!
First off, Chris needs a sleeveless shirt to go with his jeans and rubber boots!
Second, I LOVE Emma's hoodie!! Where did she get it?!?! It's so vintage-haha! :)
Good job getting the Jim and Lee out! I'm like you Karen, I like to know I have complete control over the animal! I was hoping for some action shots of the pigs running down the lane or in the field!!
Love you guys! Can't wait to see you in a few week!!

The sweatshirt came from Jordan Breedlove - great handy down! WE have a tshirt too. Carol knew my girls would appreciate it! The girls were hesitant at first, but now they both want to wear it! I told them their aunts would appreciate the hoodie and shirt - it was the envy during our show days!

Never a dull moment at your house, is there? I didn't know you were in the pig business for the fair. You've got about a month to keep practicing. Love the post!

Yay for the pigs! And everybody looks like good pig farmers! Where's Ella?!?! She needs a pig for open class!

Can't wait to see Jim and Lee in person this weekend!
