Mates

By a stroke of luck I got the pigs sequestered to their preferred pairings. We have a sow we want bred, a boar who was dropped off a few weeks ago, a sow we do not want bred, and five market pigs. We wanted the sow and boar in the same pasture with the other sow and market pigs in the other. When I stepped outside to check the garden yesterday, I found the boar had slipped in with everyone else. Come dinner time, all I had to do was drop some food in the right places and watch everyone sort themselves out!

Otherwise, a wonderful time on the farm. A cool wind has come down from the North and, while it’s not cold today, it definitely has an air of fall weather to it.
