This Little Piggy | Crook County 4-H

It was Connor's fourth year of 4-H this year and Miles's first official year. We don't have everything figured out yet, but are fortunate to have a great pig breeder (Thayne Egbert in Idaho) and a fantastic 4-H club, the Wild Hogs.

We usually bring the small weaner pigs home in April. They're fresh-faced and cute.

Really cute.

They grow quickly.

And develop personalities.

Miles's pig this year was especially well formed (look at that bubble butt!).

She was so well formed that she won her class on market day. (I was at the right place at the right time to catch this shot — Miles had just figured out they were first in class.)

Another year has gone and we're looking forward to the next.
