Prior to Shawn and I getting married, my insistence was "no pigs". Well, it has been only a little over 6 years and guess what we have on Admiral Acres :)We went to Mahtowa yesterday to get some pigs. They had 400 pigs there - UGH did that barn stink. Shawn explains to the seller:
Shawn: "When we got married, Heather insisted on no pigs".
Seller: "Did you finally get warn down to agreeing?"
Me: "No, I had home raised pork and store bought pork and there is no question, we needed pigs".
Shawn's vehicle smelled horrific the whole way home. He had to help load them and, Thanks to Jen, the smell has finally lessened on his hands with her great idea of vinegar, water, and vanilla. It still didn't kill the smell completely, but at least we could sleep at night :)
I have to admit the pigs are cute. I don't think I want 400 of them though! I wouldn't mind getting a few sows and a boar and having some little piglets to raise... I must be losing it :)
