How to Have a Happy Hog? Hose 'em off, baby!
days are hot we follow the long, long, long hose down the hill and crank it up to hose down the pigz. They just love it. Not only does this give them a cool down, but its a great way to keep their wallow full and muddy - just like they love it.
They belly right up and enjoy the cool water. They stand there and let it run all over them, shake their heads, drink from the spray, and then run around carvorting in the mud.
Remember that pigz don't cool themselves like we do so this is a great way to keep the bacon happy.
Afterwards, they are shiny and happy - would you just look at that beautiful red color! Yay bacon! We are so glad that we found Spring Hill Farms.... wow! For those of you who aren't lucky enough to have your own Tamworths - if you are in or even near Central Ohio - run, don't walk over to their site and order you up some fresh pork. And word is... they are now raising Large Blacks.... I know... that's what I'm talking about. You can bet that I'll have my name on that list for more feeders next spring.
And, my dear Heiko requested a ducklet.. I mean.. a duckling so here you go, brother!
Is everyone enjoying this cool morning!? Ohmigosh I need a long sleeved shirt to be outside - I'm lovin' the cool down.
Happy Monday everyone!
