|A soupy mess|
|Sunday morning is when the Captain could get the help, so Sunday is when they got loaded. The guy dragging the hog out of the pen is not the largest man in the world, but his hands are as hard as rocks.|
This is a very short video clip I was able to take. Hogs are vocal and this one was expressing his displeasure at being pulled away from the feed trough. The video quality is poor because my main job was to keep the rest of the hogs in the pen as they snaked the "chosen ones" out one at a time.
For those who live in the city, a pig becomes a hog when it passes the 180 pound (80kg) mark.
|They refined their method as we loaded more hogs. A bucket over their head calmed them down. They skidded more easily when both rear legs were noosed.|
|I did not get a picture of Kubota dragging any of the hogs, but the crew was mighty glad to have him.|
