Tokyo and Rio

DSCN8218Our new little piggies, Tokyo and Rio, joined us this past weekend. For now they’re in the extra stall in the chicken camper while we close in the front of the pole barn. Tokyo is the pinker female on the left; Rio is on the right, he has more of a gray to his shin. They’re both red Tamworths.

In other piggie news: Singapore is getting big! She’s done a fine job of rooting up her pen. I’ll be able to expand the garden there next year.

Singapore

 We picked up our pig this past weekend.

Her name is Singapore (no car brands for names this time). She’s quite friendly. Farmer Ezra likes to check in on her frequently, often with a brother, dog or cat in tow.

Struggling_along put together a new pig pen and shelter for her. It will be interesting to see how long the grass lasts. Pigs are certainly a great way to prep a garden bed!
