|I am wearing a safety belt - it's holding up my pants!|
|Were not moving it! It's great right here..|
|Hope the light doesn't lead to navigational mishaps..|
On the porcine front we completed the inside pen. I had some 4 by 8 poplar timbers for makeing uprights and heavy duty trim that runs up the side of the pen. We reinforced the floor with plywood. The shed doesn't have too many more years left in it, but between the chicken coop and inside pig pen I've probably increased the chances of it making another winter.
|Rough 2 X 6's for the top three rails and ledge, 4 X 8's for the bottom two feet The chicken pen is to the right.|
Friends Barb ( Bubba ) and Mike (Rockey ) and doggies Rusty and Mia arrived and really fast tracked construction with the outside pen and weather station projects.
Bubba climbed in the skid-steer and is now a certified operator!
|Fork it over!|
|You gotta break a few eggs to make an omelete..|
|..A little to the right and two and a half feet down..|
Rough 2 by 6 lumber for rails. We wanted it to be sturdy. We also put heavy duty chicken wire on the inside to cut back on rail gnawing.
|Bubba ducks just in time! It just looks like she is being threatened with a stick..|
|You just have to think of somebody who needs straightening out..|
|Strong like Bull! But time will tell..|
|Looks like the piggy is making a high speed break for it..|
|We put a foam head banger on the top, just in case..|
|The door has a wedgie. The rope goes to a pully so the door can be opened without going in the pen.|
The seven week old Piglets arrived on Thursday to much excitement! The greeting committee was on hand.
|Just so you know..this is my pad..I get all the mice.|
|So waddda think, should we stay?|
Bubba is now known as the pig whisperer. She quickly had the piggies eating Deer Tongue lettuce right out of her hand.
|Kinda looks like she is blowing lettuce out of her nose!|
The female is a little more daring than the male.
Hope your week is going well!
