Piglets

Zsa Zsa had piglets yesterday. Only five in this litter so they should be good and strong. She's happy because she's on the all-you-can-eat buffet. #mangalitsa #lardpigs #heritagebreeds

More pigs

Zsa Zsa is almost ready to make some more mouths to feed so we rebuilt the farrowing pen and lured her over with a giant zucchini. Should have piglets any day now. #mangalitsa #woolypigs #oldworldpigs #heritagebreeds

Sheepdogs

Jones has been showing his daughter how to move the sheep down to the lower pasture and back. Frog is doing great but needs to learn to pace herself, she's wiped out. #bordercollies #sheepdogs #herding

Foxtail

Rounding up the herd last night we noticed this little ewe with her right eye closed. We caught her and had a look and found a foxtail stuck deep in it just inside the upper eyelid. We were able to grab it and then flushed and applied some antibiotic ointment to her eye. It must have been so painful but the good news is her eye was already open and looking better this morning. #ranchlife #stcroixsheep #alwayssomething
