Well everybody, we did it! It was touch and go there for a few minutes. Between Dennis and I it was touch and go. I think he was ready to take me to market and leave the pig behind. There are pictures in the picture gallery of a job well done by these greenhorns. Also thanks each and every one of you for your help, advice, and encouragement. I didn't even get weepy, I guess I was so proud of us that we did it in under 30 minutes that I could have burst.

Learned a couple of things, always and I mean always wear levis if you are going to get into a pen with two pigs who haven't eaten in 24 hours. Also listen to your husband, he kept saying do what Kraig WY said to do - "Take it Slow". I wanted to get in and get out.

Thanks again one and all!!!

Well done folks, back when they wouldn't eat I was sure they would die of old age.

I remember someone telling Dennis not to let you name them or you wouldn't want to send them to the butcher. Well I guess they tryed your patients enough for you to let them go. That trailer Dennis bought will be handy for you. Has he got the new brush hog for you yet?

Good going. Now you can give advice to other "Green Horns" about loading pigs. Let us know how your pork turns out when you get it home.

I think sh---y was hiding in the truck, he kept going inside and sitting for a spell. He told me he was a praying for strength to get the job done and patience to put up with me.
