So today we went off early to a little smallholding near Bromsgrove and fetched our latest batch of little saddleback piglets. These 4 are all boys and one lucky one, the one with the longest back, best markings and best temperament will be kept as our boar!
Well we arrived back at the farm, drove the trailer down and lifted them out of the trailer and put them in the fenced off area around their new pig arc and well……………. they went straight through the electric fence and were off!!!!
And then eventually with much coaxing, rounding up and bribing with food………… we got them safely in.
We don’t trust them though and a third strange of electric cable is now around their pen.
