So two of our girl pigs have arrived today. Meet Marguerite (left) and Priscilla (right). They and two other females and two boars will make up our foundation breeding group. They are being housed in one of our chook tractors until they are familiar with us and their new surroundings. They seem to have settled right in, eating and drinking quite happily and enjoying the afternoon sunshine.
I'm looking forward to getting them used to me so I can go in and give them a scratch and some treats. Our dog Jessie, is a real Mum, she's taken up residence beside them and watches over them. They seem to like her, perhaps because like them, she has dark colouring.
