Well thanks to all of you and seriously your expert advise I herded in the pigs by myself. I went out to feed the critters this evening and no sooner did I open the main gate and there was Pork and Ham just a running like crazy when they saw me. Well I went in the house told Dennis, pigs are loose, grabbed the camera - see picture gallery 4 pictures there - and went out to see what to do. Well one of the pigs got through the gate I left opened so I grabbed a long stick and tapped him with it til I rounded him back inside the gate. They decided to take off again and I remember everything you guys taught me, I grabbed a bucket of food and went to one of them and he immediately stuck his head in, the other one came running, got the pail and just led them as neatly as can be back into the pen. Dennis was working on the gate at the time, the pigs had put their snouts under the gate and took it off its hinges. While getting them back in Peep and Samson, sheep&goat smelled food and decided to share. What fun and I am serious. We sure did a lot better this time around getting them in. See guys I do listen to what you tell me to do.
Now can I take my tinfoil derby off and the duct tape?

Nice looking hogs. When are they going for a ride? From the look of them they got to be nearing 300#.

Congradulations! I wish I could earn MY degree like yours. You have a beautiful barn and outbuilding. Stone? Looks like river rock. We are facing the lower half of our place with field stone. I want it to look like yours. We started with an old mobile but now it's a stone and cedar siding house, well, it will be a house when we finish the second floor. Now, it's a huge bedroom with stairs going nowhere. Makes a nice conversation piece, tho. I hope that diploma comes with a frame ta hang on the wall! Rachel
