Petting zoo Prep
That's a picture of our barn up above. Just in case you're one of the lucky people in this world who wasn't born in one.
Last weekend we put together a small petting zoo for out towns Heritage Days, a celebration that happens every year in June. We promised to bring a peacock.
We pretty much brought everything BUT the peacock. Dang things are hard to catch.
Instead we brought piglets, calves, a cow, ducklings, kittens, a rooster and a really dumb but pleasant turkey. Gathering up the piglets for the event was one of the easier tasks. We bring them in from their outside pen attached to their inside barn stall. Then we block off the barn aisle exits with extra boards, set up the livestock trailer at the other end of the barn, and use a couple large plastic hog panels to convince the pigs which direction they should head.
Here they come!
Tomorrow I'll show you more pics of our petting zoo. You all come back now hear?
