Our friends are raising pigs for their 4H project. Tonight I got to see the pigs up close and personal. For a person who has never spent much time with pigs, it was both interesting and exciting.

The kids were having a great time showing me how to feed a pig a marshmallow, which is apparently a favorite treat.

It was also great to watch 2 little people walk their pigs. The pigs weigh in at almost 200 lbs...and the kids are less than a 1/4 that size! The pigs need to be ready for the county fair in August. At that time, they cannot weigh more than 280 lbs. The pigs grow fast. When they were purchased in March, they weighed 25 lbs. I guess there is something to that phrase “eat like a pig!"
