The first time I brought feeder pigs home my girls were real little and made them into pets. I explained to them the pigs were for us to eat and will only be here a short time. The girls understood and when I walked away one got up and ran to open the gate while the other one started yelling, "Run, Run, Daddy is going to eat you"
Like naming the chickens Grill and Barbecue will make it easier in the end. Hear it doesn't work.
Oh . . . dear.
oh-oh....this isn't looking good! My grandchildren (all young) took the pigs leaving last fall all in stride. After they got big they weren't as interested.
O boy. This is a tuffy. What to do? Those little ones are so cute and hard to resist. @ 3Beeze Homestead
Uh Oh...You're in trouble now. Then again, once they get older (the critters I mean) they won't be so gosh durned cute.
I'm with Mama Pea, all I can say is "oh, boy... "!
Yeah, hopefully the cuteness will wear off when they are big ol' obnoxious critters...I love the title of this post! ;~)
I'm not coming back to read this in the fall---jk,but they are so cute
We have gone through this... Them lil' babies are too cute not to love. But after Lyndsey got her auction money from "her" 4-H pig the first year, we've never had tears again. Well, unless you count mine when the first-ever-born-on-the-farm lamb went on the butcher truck at the fair. I bawled my eyes out, Lyndsey gave her a hug, and loaded her up. We've always discussed the healthy, happy life they have with us and are very open about what they are intended for (even with other people's kids who come to visit).
Good Luck Amy! (convincing the boys I mean) LOLToo CUTE!Hugs,Laurie
