Gloucester Old Spots

Our latest additions to the farm are a pair of gloucester old spot pigs.  They are both males and we do plan to eat them, so as a result the plan is not to name them.  However they have picked up the temporary names 'Not Yet' and 'Don't Know', due to the amount of people asking what their names are.

Adrian built this pig ark from material that we found laying around the farm and his own back garden.  The pigs seem very happy with it.

Our two youngest goats have already made friends with the pigs which has been a bit of a suprise.  The baby goats are able to squeeze through the fencing and we have seen them licking the pigs and the pigs licking them back several times.

Hans Kendall came to visit the farm and although he was terrified of them, eventually managed to make friends with one of the pigs.

Both of our boys look really happy in their new home and they have loads of room to run around in since Andi, Steve and James put up a new stock fence.
