The pigs are almost done!

After a 10 year break we thought we'd have another go at keeping pigs!

We have had them for around six months now and they are ready to head off to the  slaughterhouse & they have their appointment tomorrow - Monday - so today they have had a very large breakfast, as they will be getting no tea tonight! This will make them amenable to being loaded in the trailer tomorrow!

During their 6 months with us they have turned over 2 paddocks from being just grass to being just a muddy mess as you can see in the picture!

I think I may of underestimated the amount of work to put the paddocks back to rights, but he ho!

They have been hard work and it may well be another 10 years before we give it another go!
