Growing Up Agrarian

We are four Christian, homechurched, homeschooled, homesteading, agrarian children growing up in Central Texas on a Ranch. We are Tracy,(15) Jennifer,(10) Robert,(9) and Sarah(5) Bunker. We also have one more brother, Thomas Shepard Bunker, who is in the courts of glory. We like to read books, raise animals, and play on the land. Tracy will be writing about the stuff we do. We hope you enjoy our Adventures!

Piglets

Hey! It has been awhile! Dad's computer is broken, so he has been doing his work off of Mom's, which we usually write blogs from. So Mom's computer has been occupied.

We have 7 piglets and one of them was rejected by the mother, so we are bottlefeeding it and it was bitten and scratched and it's tail was bitten off, so we cleaned it up and put some pine tar on it. It is doing very well, and Tracy is feeding it warm powdered milk every 20 minutes.

Holga, Maria and Ami had their calves. We have not named Maria's heifer calf, but Holga's bull calf is named Chico. We put a halter on him. We (Lord Willing) will begin milking Holga soon.

Ella is doing very well, she is filling out and getting cuter every day.


Well, Have a nice day!

Praying that the piglet will respond to the all the care you are giving it.

I'm sure you are enjoying all the new life being born around you, especially Ella! :-)
