Richard LOVES looking at the new trucks.

Josh and Collin, hanging out.

My favorite is visiting the barns. This cute cow looks so peaceful.

Goats are my favorite to pet. They have so much energy and they nibble on everything! I wonder if Logger is part goat...

Baby Piglets!!
Meet Pretty Ricky. He is Minnesota's Largest Boar.

He ways a modest 1200 lbs! Such a cutie!

Your pictures didn't show up at first, so all I had was some disjointed description. I thought you were writing a strange poem. :)
