Spring Is Finally Here. . . I think!After several days of wamer weather and wind the snow is largely gone.
Today we are enjoying double digit temperatures.
This is what Spring looks like. With some rain and warm weather it will quickly green up.
The litttlestrip of snow is the last of a drift along the edge of the gully behind the house.

I moved the feeding of the animals to higher and dryer land. The ground around the shed is all mud these days. They are all standing behind the electric fence. The road is drying up nicely, don't you think.
This is the runt enjoying eating away from the others where he does not have to compete with them for food.
Notice my newly plowed up lawn (if one dares to call it that.) You can let the animals do this sort of thing when you don't have a house proud wife. (There are a few advantages to being single.) The runt did not do it all. The sows did it before I got them under control behind the electric fence. Dave is now busy repairing the damage. Bless his heart. He rests on his walker between patches repaired. Remember Dave, Grass side up!
The runt continues to amuse me. While the other piglets rush to gobble up the feed by running as fast as their little stiff legs will cary them, the runt sashays along behind in no great hurry. I guess he know that if there is not enough feed for him he can go and get his own. He often comes up on the porch and eat right out of the bag of feed and then comes in the house for a nap behind the wood stove. He definitely has the best of both worlds.
