We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Mrs. Loosey's New Piglet

We got a surprise this morning.  Mrs. Loosey had her shoats.  There were only two, the one colored like Mr. Salad Fingers did not live but, this little one looks just like his/her momma.  She is not allowing us to get close to her baby.  Can't say that I blame her much.  Her teats are full, so I am quite amazed she only had two.


Isn't it amazing, this little one weighs about a pound about the length of a dollar bill.  Absolutely tiny compared to his mum.




Here is our only Americana Rooster, I think he looks rather studly.  But, the hens are not buying it, I think they know that he is not best in the show.  They prefer Sprocket the Spanish Rocket's advances. LOL

Life on the farm.....
