My 14-year-old son recently showed his market hog at the Yolo County 4-H Spring Show at the Yolo County Fairgrounds in Woodland. He named his pig “Cow,” which is a reflection of my son’s dry sense of humor. His spotted pig won the title of “Reserve Champion of All Other Breeds.” My son was rather pleased at his first venture into the world of show pigs. He’s already thinking of new names for his next hog!
We are still looking for homes for several of the horses that we acquired when we bought a neighboring ranch to expand our sheep operation. The horses range in age from this Thoroughbred/Quarter horse filly who was born on June 13th, to a 26-year-old Appaloosa/Percheron broodmare. So far, we have found homes for 20 of the 30 horses that were left behind on our new ranch by the previous owners, thanks in part to local horse trainers including Christa Petrillo. Please help spread the word to fellow horse enthusiasts who may be interested in adopting a horse.
