That was where he raised most of his corn and shoats, and lots of sorghum cane.
Hiram was fattening four of the spring shoats against winter.
She looked like a good sow, and the six-weeks-old shoats were in good condition.
It was plain, then, as long as the old one was there to guard them, we could never lay our fingers upon the ‘shoats.’
These shoats Bob now caught, and dropped into the bay, knowing that their instinct would induce them to swim for the nearest land.
"An' Job Grinnell he kem down ter the fence, an' 'lowed he'd slit our ears, an' named us shoats," continued her brother.
Droves of black hogs and shoats are ploughing the sward in their search for sweet roots, or lying half-buried in the wet sand.
“You did so well with the cheese, you may see what you can do with the shoats,” said Mr. Walden to Robert.
You have two or three nice 'shoats' in the pen, which you are feeding for your winter's meat.
When shoats are fed in the winter for fattening, alfalfa hay helps them to grow.
