Pigs at 4.5 Months

Pigs at 4.5 months on the HenSafe Smallholding

Pigs are growing and eating well. So different now than in early August when they first arrived.

This was their first day, learning to feed from the trough. Once they'd got used to it we gradually moved the trough across to where it is now on the concrete. Big scary world out there for very small creatures.

Nosy Chicken!

Thought I’d take some photos this morning and this nosy chicken wouldn’t leave me alone until I’d snapped her. #diva

Upton House Pig Poster

Saw this poster at Upton House on a day out to experience "Banking for Victory". The house has been transformed into a Country House Bank as it was when the Bearsteds moved out in 1939 and the family owned bank, M. Samuel & Co, moved in for the duration of the Second World War.
No kitchen scraps now for livestock of course.

The Wallow

Piglet in the Wallow on the HenSafe Smallholding

Hot here today. Too hot for this piglet not to discover and enjoy the wallow. Amazing how instinct kicks in.
