1 litter gone ...another 1 hits the ground.She only had 11,1 was still-born & she laid on 1 in the middle of the night so we got 9 walkin'...for now.The fella that bought the last litter said he wanted this 1,too.I'm gonna call & remind him tomorro.We took 1 to the butcher on Saturday...600 lbs..I was glad to see her go,she was a grumpy ole thang.

I think it to late in the afternoon to comment on grumpy old things. Maybe.., after a little nap? Dad ued to bring home two then three odd and even yrs each Spring. Slaughter in October. Fed them clean stuff. Lard came out whiter than new sheets.
Though they were for butcher, I played with them just the same. Might be why they dissappeared when I was in school. I'd have liked helping load them. Doidn't make any differance to me. That home grown pork & sugar cured hams sure was good.

Well,if ya got a use for lard or the head(hogs-head cheese)& yer anywhere near Cut-n-Shoot ypu can have it.Our butcher always thinks it's strange that we don't keep it.We keep the cracklin' but not the other goodies.I guess I could cook the craklin' in the lard.Aint nothin' like good ole home grown pig.
