Vaccination Day

With the help of Dr. Becky, we make keeping our animals vaccinated
a priority.
Frontline application and heart worm prophylaxis are a monthly task.

Yesterday it was time for the piggies to get their vaccinations.

Ginger and MaryAnn have never been a problem to vaccinate.
They are so very motivated by food that if you have a treat to occupy them, 
you can do just about anything to them.

While they don't enjoy their vaccinations, they tolerate them 
thanks to a bowl of carrot coins.

These girls' skin is very tough and difficult to get a needle through...
in fact, their rump is almost impenetrable, 
so Dr. Becky vaccinates them in the shoulder area.

A little squeal of protest is about all they give us,
as they munch, munch, munch on their yummy carrots.

When the carrots are finished a flake of hay takes their mind
off the harrowing (not) experience.

They never hold a grudge... 
actually, I think they forget the "ouch" almost immediately.


Saturday Hubbs and I had a day away from the farm.
We joined a group of our friends and headed to State College
for the Penn State - Illinois football game.

We had a blast and returned home to find this gift from our dog sitter:

I hope you enjoyed this as much as we did....
we laughed hysterically!

PS...that ending frame was supposed to say:
"Thank you Kelley!"


  1. Oh My! I love that chicken! Where did you get it? That would make a great Christmas gift for my youngest daughter.


  2. My hubbs and son were also at the Penn State game on Saturday-----great ending to the game. Always a good time at Penn State football.
