I don't know whether to be happy, offended or hungry...

We had 2 pigs named bacon and pork chop.

As this is our first calf born here, we will probably just sell him when he gets grown....

BTW - We had a few steaks on the grill last night from 'ol T-bone....

He sure was a fine fellow...

No offense...

I always wanted a pig so I could name it Kosher, that way no one eats Kosher.

Looks like the cow has a bit of Milking Shorthorn in her.  I admire your quiet neighborhood.

Hi-Tech,

what will you do with her?
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

although she remained small, she gave quite an ammount of meat (small but VERY bulky)
