This week has pretty much been all about piglets, due in part to our little miracle piglet who continues to defy the odds by not only surviving, but thriving. He needed to be separated for a couple of days, so we kept him in a wire dog crate next to the pig pen. I...

I didn't get a photo post done last week because we were busy with family and Thanksgiving, so this is actually two weeks worth of photos. We had a lot of fun visiting family in Ohio. We were there for the first snowflakes of the season, and Farmboy couldn't wait to...

The weather in Florida finally doesn't suck, so it's really been a great week to be outside. We normally start to get cooler temperatures in October, but it's been unseasonably warm this year. We're still battling mosquitoes, but they're manageable. This basically...
