This is the blog for our little farm in Skagit county. Here we have Shetland sheep and Nigerian Dwarf goats. In addition we have donkeys, cattle, pigs, chickens, geese, and peafowl. The blog describes the weekly activities here.
So I come home from work today, and Tom told me he just got the pigs situated.
So I said “Pigs? What pigs?”. He says he just got back from buying 2 pigs and putting them in their pen.
So these are our new pigs. They are Hereford Duroc crosses that are 6 weeks old. We had talked about calling about them, but I wasn’t expecting to come home to them.
So this is a big adjustment for all of us. The sheep, dogs and donkeys are curious, and we have never owned pigs before. They are Lucy (with the white on the face) and Desi. There is a distinctively new sound in the barnyard as the sunlight fades away.
