Pig Chasin'

A typical day on the farm.

I was on the phone with mom, when Andrew came in to tell me that the pig was out! By the time I got to the door Richard was already chasing it. So here was Richard, Andrew, and me chasing the pig all over the property. She ended up going in both horse pastures and then finally down over in the holler. As you can see Storm, Beauma, and Autumn, in this first photo didn't come close to her, but when she got in with Bullet and Jim, Bullet tried to kill her. He chased her trying to stomp her, but she finally got of there.

So after about a 30 minute chase, Richard threw the lasso over her and finally got her back up the hill.

So in the end she is safely back in her lot. At least for a few weeks until we butcher her!
