Strangers Among Us

Fred the wonder-dog has just discovered that there's something very strange in the pig-paddock. It wasn't there yesterday. In fact he and Steel (son of Fred the wonder-dog) and Ella the guard dog discussed it most of the night, at length.

That's it asleep in the background. She's probably tired due to the great dog discussion that took place last night.

This fellow doesn't know what all the fuss is about.

And nor does CCB (Campdraft Committee Breakup).

Our pig production is at an all-time low, due to the acquisition of a new boar earlier in the year. Boots (the boar) was only a wee baby when we got him, and we're still waiting for him to turn into "Daddy" material. Which has meant we've had no piglets born this year, and therefore no pigs the right size for the afore-mentioned breakup party. So CCB arrived yesterday and is to be the star attraction. The trick is do not get attached to pigs.
Except Mama Pig, Socks and now Boots - the foundation herd. And for those avid pig-breeding family members interested in porcine genetics, she is actually half Berkshire, but out of a pink mummy.

  1. Hi there! Thanks for stopping by - hope you get some moisture soon. We're very dry and plagued with grasshoppers right now, but we're supposed to be getting some rain soon.
