Pig Flip Procrastination
I don't know why every time the pigs need their feet trimmed we procrastinate. It takes 20 minutes when we get right down to it.
We always put it off and then mean to do it but don't. I tell Hubby that this weekend, for sure, we are going to do the pig flip. He agrees and then we just don't.
Maybe it's all the screaming. The pigs scream from the moment you enter their pen until you place them back upright after their trim and swig of worm medicine.
The pig flip is where Hubby runs up behind them and grabs their front legs flipping them over onto their backs into his lap. Then he holds all four legs in the air while I trim their hooves and then top off the torture with a swig of wormer.
Today was the day. We did the pig flip. I trimmed and wormed.
It took 20 minutes.
I'm sure I talked about it more than that.
I know I thought about it more than that.
