Reese Witherspoon shamelessly pimped her kids for the US Magazine article. The woman who complains about "paparazzi scaring her kids" ARRANGED paparazzi photoshoot on some pig farm. WHAT A PHONY!

Where's Jakey at? Surely the paps would have photographed him as well. I can't imagine him not being there especially with it being her birthday and all.

Wow Spit! Isn't it a small world? Yeah, if you go into the field on my parents farm, and stand in the far corner, you can see St. Helens AND Hood at the same time. When Helens blew, wow, the view we had, while frightening to a then 10 year old (Okay now I'm feeling old) was also a spectacular view. We have pictures that if we cared to sell them I'm sure would be worth some money. It was amazing.

I've seen geese get really mean
spitfire2 spitfire2 9 years
LOL, that's what they do!!!! We had about 8 geese, but my favorite was the Chinese long neck goose, I guess they could tell he was different from the rest and he was sort of an outcast. Everyone had a mate except him, I think he had a crush on me though. :OY: I would sit on the ground and he would come up to me and rub his neck all over me. He would look directly into my eyes. My brothers would tease me about him all the time..lol He followed me every where. But you ARE absolutely right about them being very territorial. They PINCH THE HELL out of who ever they are biting. They pinch so hard it leaves a hickey like mark and it hurts pretty bad. It doesn't bleed or anything, but it's a pinch you won't forget. A guy came over to fix my water pump one day and he walked out to the pump with my uncle, the geese started making a fuss (calling each other) and when they formed their little group, they slowly started walking towards the guy that was helping my uncle, any way, they guy noticed them circling him, and he started backing up, my uncle was like "They're not gonna bother you, don't act scared" About that time 4 of them jumped on the guy and was clamped down hanging onto the guys jeans!!!!!!!!!!! I WAS LAUGHING SO HARD I COULDN'T CATCH MY BREATH!!!! I know it wasn't funny, but it was funny as hell!!! They are something as you well know. They got my daughter in the back when she was about 3 yrs old. One pinched her and left a perfectly round hickey on her back, she said she can't stand geese to this day because of that. She's 17 now and I don't think it left any lasting scars...lol They are GREAT watch dogs though!

spitfire-I am terrified of geese! Like really scared of them. My dads side of the family all live on farms in Nebraska, and we would go visit them during the summer. Well one day we were coming home from church with my grandma and my sisters and I were trying to get out of the backseat (this was when I was like 8, mind you) and as we opened the door the flock of geese that hung around the farm swarmed the car..and they just sat outside the car door waiting for us to get out. My sisters and I sat there for a good while hoping they would just wonder away, but they wouldnt and grandma was yelling at us to stop being such a bunch of sissies and just get out of the car. So..we did..and Im pretty sure we all got bit several times. Geese are mean little fuckers! I am still traumatized!

OMG I used to live in Beaverton/Tigard area!! lol I ALWAYS loved waking up in the morning and looking out of my kitchen window and on clear days it was a beautiful view of Mt. Hood! The kids and I miss going to Mt. Hood there were so many things to do there, and in the summer coming down the mountain on those little plastic cars were so much fun! I think it was called the Mt Hood Meadows. Also going to MT. St. Helens was amazing. The trees still look like match sticks after all this time :(

Did he dig it with a back hoe? It broke our backs doing it by shovels, because just 12 inches down we hit yellow/hard clay and rocky stuff, it was like shoveling through cement!!! You have to go way deeper than people think though, because the legs are hard to get in, and even just 30 minutes of the animal being dead it starts getting stiff. (sorry about the graphic description)

OMG,that's terrible, I'm sorry about that, but you know my Mom's Tennessee walker was in heat, got out of the fenced area some how and ran into HWY 52 that runs through SC, a SEMI hit her horse too. It was horrible and so sad. I hate when things like that happen. When I was in 2nd grade, we were supposed to come up with an invention that would make the world a better place. I didn't come up with an invention, but I said I WISHED someone would come up with a way to keep the animals (wild and domesticated) from getting near the roads/highways.

Hey, I hope ya'll don't think I was criticizing anyone for the way your animals were raised, I just don't want to be criticized for our way. I was being pre-emptive. I envy those of you that didn't have to watch animals die on an almost daily basis, I really do.

George Clooney had one, but I think it died.

Pigs are becoming the new small dog in Hollywood. Is it just me or are a lot of people getting them?
spitfire2 spitfire2 9 years
I gotta add one more thing then I'll shutup. The chickens got wise to mama finding their nests and taking their eggs (like I said they roamed free), so they started hiding their eggs. We wouldn't know where they were until we saw them walking around with 10 chicks following behind it..lol

Caterpiller girl.. Even though we didn't kill our animals, I learned about hard work too. Emptying about 25 different troths and filling them with clean water twice a day, (my parents were so anal about giving the animals good care, we couldn't just fill their water up, we had to clean each one out and fill it with clean cold water) going to the feed store every Saturday morning and carrying those heavy bags of feed, is why I have back problems now I think, that, and wrecking on my motorcycle. Instead of killing an animal or letting it die when it got sick, my mom would take it to the Vet, no matter how small, insignificant, or big. She paid over $800 for a turkey that had a foot infection and couldn't "roost" in the tree anymore. She spent thousands upon thousands on animals in need. They couldn't even go on vacation because they didn't think anyone could or would take care of the animals like we did. But like I said, I wouldn't trade it for the world. Hard work though, yeah I know all about it. One of the hardest was when me and my husband had to dig a grave for a horse (the backhoe was broken) with just 2 shovels. It was near the end of July and in South Carolina. If you ever lived there then you know what I'm talking about. 105 degrees and 100% humidity. It's the humidity that gets you. It took us 3 days. (The horse was old and the Vet couldn't do anymore for it, we knew it was gonna die, so we dug the grave before hand). That was a tough one. We grew vegetables but we never ate anything we raised. My uncle would bring us Vinson from one of his hunting clubs, and my granny would buy meat from the store. The closest we got to eating any protein from what we raised was from the eggs we gathered from the chickens, ducks, and geese. (THE GEESE EGGS WERE HUGE).

mykie, we had lots of animals but we also knew in the back of our heads that they werent "pets". I learned alot from them, but in a different way, i learned about hard work, about building enclosures and buying feed and hauling feed and what feed goes where! I think i cried once or twice when i knew we had to slaughter an animal, because I tend to humanize the darn things! But i knew it was the way of the world, and that from beginning till end i was a part of it and that made me proud! the one and only animal that escaped the chopping block, was a cow named Red, she had given us many many little cows over the years, and dad was going to make her into steaks, when she got out of her pasture, lord knows how, and we put her back in..days later we went out to get her again for the "deed" and she was gone AGAIN! she freaking knew it was coming i swear! So dad took pity and saved her and she kept him company till she died of natural causes...

TOO FUNNY about the Goose spit! I remember being in Stanley park in Victoria BC one year and thinking how fun it would be to feed Bread to the geese. HUGE MISTAKE! I still have a scar on my arm LOL And I know alot of people that had farms like yours Spit, they're awesome. Ours was my families way of making money though. We raised the animals to sell to butchers, or to butcher ourselves, that's just how we made our living. The only "pets" we had were our horses, and believe me, I didn't like them all that much when I had to get up at 4:30 in the morning to clean and feed them before school every day. It had to be done, and it was my job. Blech. LOL
