Blow it out your Egg Hole!

The children were inspired to blow out eggs and paint them all pretty.

Two Pigs and a Rooster

We got a couple of Pigs this year! They are way too fun!
One pig will go to the Marquette County Fair and the other is the "family pig".

We had a bit of time before we got our pigs to make a temporary pen in our hoop house.
We decided to build a temporary pen until  the snow melts, then we will put up fencing and a moveable shelter elsewhere. Mojo and the kids got to work with pallets as walls inside the hoop.
Below is the piggy bed.

Seeds n' Spores Family Farm went to pick up all the pigs...13 of them total and brought them back to the farm. Six of the pigs will end up being "Fair" pigs.

Morgan, Kiah and Niikah checking out the organic feed.
We brought our own bins, so we will dump the bags and weigh accordingly.

Kiah found the little peeps in the greenhouse!

Kiah wrestlin' a pig out of the trailor and into the back of our truck. The kids are cheering her on!

Ziggy Maurice Stardust, our rooster, welcomes the pigs to their new home.

They love each other so much.

Checkin' out their new piggy pen.

Good night!
