"Um, honey, did the fish die." ~The Park Wife
"Yes" ~ Big Buckaroo
"Oh, you robbed me of a whole blog about a fish funeral and how the boys reacted."~The Park Wife
"It was a inspirational sermon and a slow flush." ~ Big Buckaroo
Cute and funny, I am one blessed woman.
So, now that the fish that was on one last fin when it arrived here has arrived in its destination, of course we have to add another animal to our brood. And, no surprise, it is a weak one that needs constant care.
Big and Little Buckaroo had a talk and decided that a pig is what Little Buckaroo wants to show in 4-H this year. So, we went to get a piglet. The mom of this little gal laid on the rest of her piglets and they did not make it. She is only a week old and has a 50/50 chance of making it. Circle of life is REALLY taught around this place people!
She smelled real bad so she had to have a bath.
All clean and needing to check everything out, meet Tonto. I know it is a girl, but Little Buckaroo is insisting that since he is the Lone Ranger that she has to be Tonto.
It was nap time.
Littlest Buckaroo likes her too. I walked in on him stroking her head and he said, "what are you going to be when you grow up? Oh, an animal." The innocence of a 2 1/2 year old, when she grows up she is going to be dinner! No angry comments from PETA please!
If anyone has any experience with piglets, let me know as we embark on our new adventure ~ 4-H.
