Miss Piggy

Well, it had to happen.  Up until last week, we had not had pigs in the barn.  I’ve done a little research and decided if pigs were in our future, it would be a Tamworth for sure – a rare breed, thought to be extinct until recently, having come over on the Mayflower with the pilgrims.  Our friends have tams and I hope to get a couple from them one day.

In the meantime, a piglet came to us last week.  Just a regular landrace common piglet, with BIG attitude and personality.  She liked Hunter right away and showed her affection so that now he is afraid of her.  She is learning the ropes of our barn (we are all re-learning since the horses have left) and is providing some entertainment !  I hope to get her help in the garden this spring. Picture to follow…
