We just got PIGS!

Graham’s been working hard to prepare a place for 2 pigs here on the farm, and preparing his truck to be able to transport them. He picked them up this evening with the help of his bro.  They’re Large Black/Hampshire females. They’re 14 weeks old and about 50 pounds. They should grow to be around 250 lbs!!  Naturally, they weren’t too sure about getting off the truck and had to be coaxed a bit…one got loose in the yard and the guys managed to somehow get her into their penned-in area.  We’ve never been around pigs before, so this should be a fun learning experience for all of us. Ephraim warmed up to them quickly, and it seems he’ll be just as excited about them as he is the chickens.
