See this lil guy? I guess it could be a lil gal, well, my kiddos and a few others, got up close and personal with s/he and a few of it's buddies last night at the 2011 Orange County Hog Wrestling...event :)
These little guys weren't just muddy, they were greasy too! More fun for everyone involved. The night started out with the minis first and finished with the older kiddos wrapping it up. This was the first year my kids have ever tried it, but definitely won't be the last. They got hooked....those little piglets stole their hearts! They will be going back for more & more & more (and I'm so glad!!!!! I had just as much fun as they did!). My two year old wore his rubber boots hoping to get in on some muddin' (or is it?) himself. He can't wait! He kept saying "next year, I go get me a hog!"
Introducing the "TOUGH BUDDIES" this is a BEFORE picture..........
and this is the "TOUGH BUDDIES" after picture ;)......
Had to get little brother in here too.....since he did wear his boots ;)
We can't forget the girls. Last but not least are the beautiful 'Dogwood Divas'.
Check us out world!
We had such a great time......and the fair is just beginning! :) Can't wait to see what is in store for the rest of the week! A special thanks to the staff at the Orange County Extension Office, the board for the Orange County 4-H Fair, the Volunteers who helped throw this Hog Wrestling together, the people who let our kiddos 'wrestle' their piggies, the FANS who supported our kids, and the wonderful kids who got out there, jumped in that stinky mud and wrasseled those hogs! :) It was a huge success!
