Last week my husband went out and built a new lean-to for the pigs. It is not hard to keep pigs warm, it is hard to keep them cool. We expanded the pen last year to enclose some trees so they had some shade but after 3 years their shelter was pretty torn up so a new one was seriously needed prior to their arrival.
My Pops used to say "everything is a project" and of course, as is the case with father's, he was right. So after the lean-to was completed my husband, Frank, went to work on the electric fence only to discover that the electricity to the barn is no longer working. So that is what he has spent his entire holiday weekend doing.....trenching the yard and laying new wiring. Frank is a wonderful man so of course he thought that while he had the trencher rented he would fix the wiring to our gazebo, he was very pleased with himself until he ended up wrapping the current wiring from the gazebo around the trencher pulling off part of the gazebo wall.....wait it get's better.....the wall contained a hornet's nest!!! So now he and our dear friend, John, have been out there all day trying to fix that as well....oh and after they reran the wiring to the barn...it still isn't working. Pop's was right, as always!!!
Okay, enough rambling for today....I am going to go make those poor guys some dinner. Check in tomorrow for pics of the piglets.
