Rabbits, Pigs, and Cows Oh My!

So, what’s knew with the Koelms? We are growing! No! I am not having another child. However, we have collected more four legged friends!

We picked up Brooke’s 4H pigs the 1st weekend in March. She named them Baxter & Beazley and they have adapted well. Beazley is a Duroc gilt and Baxter is a crossbred barrow. Beazley likes to have her belly rubbed and will roll over so you can get just the right spot!

Three weeks ago Darin went to an auction to find white leghorn chickens for the FFA program. He did not come home with the chickens, but he showed up with 15 rabbits! Unfortunately, know nothing about rabbits, but we are learning!

Then, last weekend, Darin was offered a Hereford bottle calf. He couldn’t pass her up and headed to Lincoln to pick her up! She is full of personality. Her official name is Blue, but I did not like the name Blue for a girl, so I call her Bluebell. She is a keeper!

Stay tuned for pictures and more 4 legged friends to be added soon!
