Meet the Girls

We have four new sows on our farm. Three are C.S.Farmer's and one belongs to D3. After months (years?) of saving for a puppy, D3 decided that investing in a sow would give her profits. She plans on getting a puppy another time, but she wanted this opportunity to have her own farrowing business. It's hard to find piglets to grow out in our area, so she already has a place to sell them- her family farm.

She was hiding, so I could only get this one.


I'll share more about the new girls in future posts.

"Hey, wait! You forgot me!" 
You're not a sow.
"But you always call me a pig at dinner time."
So true!

This week:
Wednesday: Chats on Farmhouse Porch

  3. Aw Pigs, Not a fan. We had 1000 breeding sows. I think your four would be nice though. 4 is manageable. Our first sow though was named Sweet Rose. She was too.

    My brother's daughter just got Grand Champion Hog at our State Fair.
    I hope you are having a very nice week.
