|Kevin makes a happy travel home for the pigs.|
Then the pigs went for a road trip with us, compete with stops where I would get out and make sure they were all still in there! We drove them the hour home and got the trailer backed up to the barn. The next step was for Kevin and I to grab the pigs one by one and walk them down the stairs, across the barn and set them down in their area we had prepared for them. Things had been so smooth at the first farm, with 5 adults helping out, I was nervous if we could replicate that.
The first couple trips went really well, but on the third try things got a little more exciting. Kevin grabbed one and headed downstairs. I got in the trailer, grabbed a pig, and another one went darting toward freedom. I set the pig in my arms back in the trailer, closed the doors and went searching for the escapee.

Since then we have not had much drama with the pigs and they seem to be very much enjoying their new home and we are pumped that we have them here!
