2010 Market Hog

We picked up Claire's fair hog a couple of weeks ago. Kate tagged along and jokingly asked the man if he had a runt to give away. Well, as a matter of fact, he did! So here they are. ClaireAnna's fair hog is the bigger one. She is pretty! The little one is Nugget. A runt from the same litter. We're going to butcher her at about 75lbs and have her smoked in quarters. The show hog will reach about 280lb and be butchered after the fair, hopefully after she wins Grand Champion Market Hog and fetches Claire a pretty penny at the charity auction! Today, Ted gave them a bath and let them run around in the barnyard. Look at this adorable video of Claireanna putting them away for the night! Eventually, they both did go in the gate.
