Last night, our butcher came to get the pigs. I was sooo hopeing he would come in the daylight, but Nooooooooo, the bum came just after 8 pm. For those of you who know pigs....dark is when the predators come out..therefore..they panic. So, we get the trailer lined up....the chutes in place...all I have to do is go in there with a stick, and guide them in...right!?? WRONG!! They panic...I ended up in my behind not once...but twice...in the MUD and well...you know...then at one point the largest sow( her weight is 301 pounds) came towards me....and stepped on my foot. She tore the top of my shoe open...and ripped the top of my foot open. I am now the proud owner of a very purple, swollen foot...but hey...the pigs are gone! LOL I pick them up on the 15th. I am SO GLAD that night is over. Looks like today is a slow day for me...ouchy...my poor foot.
