Pig-a-Palooza

These are some of our May piglets…they are about 90 lbs. now.

Not much time for writing lately but I have been finding time to take photos. A couple of our sows have had piglets in the last two weeks. We usually make each sow a small private pen until the piglets are ready to be weaned at around six weeks old. This time, we put six huts in a fenced-in area with trees, grass, and plenty of room to roam. These are all first-timers so we were very curious to see how they’d do. So far, so good.

Even the not-ready-for-prime-time part of the barnyard looks nice in the evening light.

    So she set the little creature down, and felt quite relieved to see it trot away quietly into the wood. ‘If it had grown up,’ she said to herself, ‘it would have made a dreadfully ugly child: but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.’ And she began thinking over other children she knew, who might do very well as pigs, and was just saying to herself, ‘if one only knew the right way to change them — ‘ when she was a little startled by seeing the Cheshire Cat sitting on a bough of a tree a few yards off.
