So far so good

Rodney went out to feed and water this morning. He said they were as happy as punch. They were laying up in the woods enjoying the shade and mother nature. The little ones came down to eat when her poured in the corn. I did pick up one little trick from Patrick that is a great idea to help them. He soaks his corn in water to soften it for the animals. He said it lets them digest them easier. This weekend we are building a smaller pen and a chute to load them later when we head them down to the Mennonites for slaughter. My goal is to have a smoke house built in the next few months for smoking bacon and hams. I think I will probably give the first few batches away to see how good they are and what I need to change.
