The Piglets have Arrived

On the 4th of July, my partner in swine Mike, his wife Kay, Julia and I ventured to Guilford to pick up our two new piglets. Faced with a choice of eight, we picked two females - one black and one white. They settled in to their "Pig Palace" with ease. They are eight weeks old and weigh about twenty pounds. We'll keep them about five months and when they leave, they'll weigh about 225 lbs.

The dogs are so thrilled to have another farmyard responsibility. Someone else to push around and take care of. We've named them Do and Re (as in the song) but mostly likely they'll be known as Blackie and Whitey.
