My brother (a truck driver) rents a trailer from a guy just west of Little Rock. The guy had a little farm where he raised pigs. As the city spread out he was zoned out of the pig business. He was allowed to keep his cows. He turned his place into a trailer court. The trailers aren't lined out, just scattered. The tenents are told up front that his cows have the run of the trailer park. He gets day old bread, twinkies, and all kinds of stuff from a bakery. Every afternoon you can see him sitting on the back of his pickup, unraping bread and twinkies and hand feeding his cows. He is also too cheap to put gravel on the road so he has everyone put their beer and coke cans on the roads. He's got a pretty good "can paved road". (I think he got most of the beer cans from my brother). He's a neat old guy to talk to.

Hey Kraig, if he wants to get back into the pig buisiness, just call it a Petting Zoo and sell his pig feed to the customers so they can feed it to his pigs.
Later Bob

How does that work? Beer can paving. Hmmmm. I feed my cow (single useles critter) bread as well and he can down a loaf in about twelve seconds flat. Goats get it too.
