Trip to get pigs

We had a chance to buy another large black sow from our friend Dave Dalan in Walla Walla, WA. Dave was nice enough to pick up our orginal breeding pair about 18 months ago and when we found out he was downsizing we decided to buy another sow and 7 weaned piglets. The timing was great as we had decided to spend Thanksgiving with Kelly's family in Walla Walla. We were worried a bit about weather which turned out to be the least of our problems when we ended up blowing out a tire just 25 miles out of Walla Walla on our way home. To make a long story short and with a lot of help after 4 hours in the cold we were on our way. With 3 trips in the winter including this trip, one to Montana for sheep and one to South Dakota to get our Mulefoot pigs we feel very blessed to only have had a flat tire.
