Daniel is now the proud owner of a show pig. She's a cutie. For now. Ask me what I think of her when she is up to 250 lbs next March. Not that we know much about pig farmin' around here. He has named her Nacho. I think he just named her that so he can tell his sisters she is "Na-cho pig." Who knows the mind of a boy? Nacho Pig has to gain 240 pounds at least in a little under 5 months.
He's in it for the money, mainly. The winning swine last year at the County Youth show won $6000. Now, he's probably not going to come anywhere close to that, but we thought it'd be a fun way to learn about responsiblity, investments, and maybe begin to work on a college fund. I just wonder how attached everyone's gonna get over the next 5 months. It may make for a tough time in March if we all get too attached. I wanted her to be named Bacon, as a reminder of her true purpose, but Daniel's the boss hog.
From Pig Farmin' to Bull Ridin' - we are countried out this weekend! We also got to do a little Rodeoin'. We had a mechanical bull for a 5th Quarter at the church and the kids got to take a few turns before the big kids showed up. Gracie did very well, and held the record for quite awhile.
