Friday was Large Animal Auction day! Starting at 10:30 a.m. I began serving the meal for the bidders. All of the large animal clubs (sheep, beef and swine) provide the food. Usually there is BBQ and regular beef, pork and lamb, baked beans, potato salad, chips, cookies, lemonade and water. I handed out buns. That is my job every year (and I love it!). I served until about 12:30 then went to go see a few of the steers sell. After that I headed off to get my hog ready to sell. The order of sale was sheep, beef, swine but I was like #33 of over 150 pigs to sell. I was pretty happy with the price I got and a huge thank you to my buyers! After supper we went to watch the draft horse obstacle. They let the people watching do an obstacle with one person as the "horse" and one as the "driver". The "horse is blindfolded, so you must rely on your driver. It was pretty fun! I was the "horse" and Rachel was the "driver". She was giggling so much she would tug on both reins (that were around my waist) so I had no idea where to go. I was totally lost! I was hilarious! After that was done we went to go get an elephant ear. It's our annual tradition, we buy one and split it. It was a good night, lots of fun. :)
Me and my hog in the holding pen waiting to sell (well, just my pig was sold that is :))
Selling my hog!

Mom (the driver) and Mrs. Myers (the horse) going through the obstacle! So funny!
A few friends making the rounds!
Today was a little different. We did more cleaning and made a trip into town for groceries and school supplies. It's been raining around here a bunch so we can't do much outside work. :(
