This little piggy

Yesterday hubby and I travelled to Morwell to get us a couple of baby pigglets. Arnt they cute! We decided to get two girls this time and not keep them as long as we kept spit. If you have been a long time reader of this blog you would of met spit. when we took him to be butchered the guy told me that he was a very fat pig and that I had overfed him. I am a wog mama we overfeed everything!!
So as soon as I get some photos of the new girls I will not tell you what I have decided to call them. And no its not after food.
So for now I have two new babies to look after and as soon as they get used to me they will be allowed to free range out the back with the chooks. Can anyone tell me if the girls will damaga my fruit trees? I am a bit worried about them. I will have to just keep an eye on them then.
see ya

I would love to get some piggies, by I know I wouldn't be able to kill them, and they would become like pets to me....

Can't wait to see photos of them and to hear their names.

Yes, cute piggies! I wouldn't know how to raise a pig, besides the human kind. I think they are all so cute when they are little.

When I was a kid we had pigs, hundreds of them. I couldn't keep them though for the same reason as Gill, couldn't bear to kill 'em! xxx

Hello Angela
Cold and wet when I went for a walk 8am - now its gone hottish and muggy - Horrible. Think we are in for some real rain sometime.
I don't think I could deal with pigs - some of them grow quite big and can get nasty. And then theres the having to get a bigger freezer to store the brute lol
If you want a funny read look at Malc over at The Edge of Nowhere and of course theres Stonehead He's a real crofter with some funny bits here and there
Take care

I like the spotted one. The ones Amy had butchered were about 200 each to get butchered. I thought that was quite high.

I hope you enjoy girls. I can't wait to see the photos.
