^ Me too... It's almost like me on Thanksgiving, Christmas, or whenever I go to my Baba's house.

Haha! That is really funny.

Those 5 pigs went through that bale in a little over 2 days. Very impressive. I half way expected to find horses asleep standing around it with their faces still in the bale!

Curious to know that as well AA. Takes my three full sized horses and two ponies about a week to go through an 800-1000 lbs bale.

Pretty typical view from the house -

Lol! The place I used to board at fed round bales too. Horses loved to use it as a pee spot when it was closer to the end.

To the last 2 comments: that place I boarded at made really small round bales (the smallest I've ever seen). So for 5 horses (1 very old gelding, 1 baby, 2 yearlings, and 1 full grown horse) it took 3-4 days to finish it up.
