Do you know what happens when you eat like a pig?
You grow like a pig!
And these gals have really grown.
This first pictures shows the girls on November 9th.
Notice how they are as long as the cage is wide,
and they stand tall up to 2 1/2 rungs from the bottom of the cage.
Here they are yesterday (this is how I transport them to their pasture....but not for long!)
Notice they now fit lengthwise front to back and their height is up to 3 1/2 rungs from the bottom.
These gals are growing like weeds.
I really have to get them harness trained.
It won't be long before lifting them will be out of the question!
Even though they have doubled in size,
they are still very sweet...and we just love them to pieces!
Here is another picture from yesterday...
That's Becky walking Sid and Ava out to pasture early in the morning.
Waiting for them, already out to pasture, was old Duffy.
He whinnied and bucked and ran until they were finally in their pasture next to him.
The funny thing is this...
if Sid and Duffy are together, they fight.
But take Sid out of Duffy's sight and he cries and cries for him.
Go figure.....just like siblings....
can't live with them, can't live without them!
Well, finally a bit of work is being done to finish the arena.
Our construction crew has been off all week for deer hunting.
A trench for water and electric was dug yesterday, and the plumber/electrician is hard at work.
And that pile of wood beside the barn....
next year's strawberry boxes.
No more gardening on the ground
(except for the already established asparagus patch.)
And lastly, my wish for you is this...
that wherever you are, you have a friend to snuggle with on a cold wintry day!
And if a friend is not available,
may I suggest a nice warm heat lamp!
Hopefully, though, you don't have such a scowl on your face as Ella does.
Keep smiling...it's Friday!
Have a great weekend.
See you Monday with more Tails from the Farm!
