Three Stooges

IMG_5492r

Moe, Larry, & Curly arrived about a week ago.  One for the freezer, one for a pig roast for Maine Man’s 40th birthday, and one of the piggies is my friends.  It took them a few days to get the electric fence theory but I think they have finally got it.   I won’t even begin to tell you the scene my friend and I created in attempts to apply sun block to these poor lads.  If I only had a flip cam…lol.

Our last pig was processed back in March so are meat supplies are starting to dwindle.   It was a nice break from tending hogs but I did  miss filling the slop bucket with anything that was ready for discard….the chickens are a bit more finicky then pigs.  Plus with garden season in full force they also do a real good job eating up whatever remains, plants & all. 

Time to do chores…. ~Happy Week all!

Hooray for bacon! We're seriously thinking of keeping a couple pigs this winter. We do not like the pork-less stage we go through during spring/summer.

I can just picture you and your friend applying sun block to those pigs!
