Wild Hog Festival - Sabinal, TX ~~ 3/27/2011

Isn't this guy just the cutest!!!
What a fun time we had in Sabinal, TX for the Wild Hog Festival.  Had deep fried mushrooms and a BBQ pork sandwich.  And shared sweet tea and lemonade.

The mushrooms tasted great but were pretty pricey.

Ron showing off his new hat....pretty dashing I say.

Just lovin these wild hogs.

Sat next to a family that had four members of their group participating in the Catch a Wild Hog contests. The contestants (two to a team)  have to corner, catch and put the hog into a burlap bag and then drag it across the line.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Aren't these babies cute?

And this one was our favorite!!!

All the little kids who grabbed or touched a wild baby hog.

These two boys won their division.

And this is Cassidy & Alexa...they won 2nd place in their division.

Cute kids!! Looks like every one was having a good time - well maybe the hogs weren't. Russ would love the deep-fried mushrooms.

You're right, Ron looks very dashing in his new cowboy hat. Glad you two had a good time at the festival!

The hard part about cornering the hog in the pen is the pen is round.
