Toby our youmg Mangalitsa boar is in a miserable mood , His brother and two half brothers have left. He as he has a complete set of testicles so lives to fight another day. He has no Idea where they have gone and is blissfully unaware of their fate. I didn’t have the heart to tell him then truth so I told him they were auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent. But now I come to think about it I probably made him feel worse than had I told him the truth , That they were off to make pork pies. as frankly that is much easier to come to terms with than the embarrassment of BGT 🙂 still he does look sad and lonely . So if you have a home for a young very hairy pig who is looking for Love… drop us a line
The man who arrived from the Estate Agents to give us a quote on the farm and its possible sale price neglected to take any pictures of the one thing that stands out at the top of the property namely the Barn . So I have taken a couple of pics and sent them to him , I dont know how he missed it it is after all 100 ft lont and 24 ft wide in places. and of course now partly covered in Virgina creeper , that is slowly turning Red.
After all martina and I put a lot of graft in to its construction.
For the most part I have been strimming the overgrowth from under the electric fencing ( to negate earthing ) so the Big boys can go back in to the orchard and continue clearing brambles.
Apart from a glancing blow to the nether regions ( by an over eager goat ) there is nothing of importance to write about this week so I wil do what I normally do and finish with something from previous BLOGs.
We will no doubt chat again soon
