Chips off the old block

You know how they say “let sleeping dog’s lye” It goes for pigs as well. I went to take a photo of Snappy this morning, after I fed them, to show off her piglets. Luckily I didn’t latch the gate after me and was able to escape before she took of a leg. She’s very protective, which is good – and very different to the last litter.

James and Harry cleaned up the old pig sty, which was great. The NSW High School Teachers had a snap strike, which is why Harry had the day off. They also collected a nice mound of fire wood and kindling from around the front.

Anyway, I took a photo of Snappy whilst I stood on a bucket on the other side of the pen – in safety. BTW, Rosie appears top have had another couple of piglets (?????????) because I’m sure there was only eight on Sunday – now there is ten, Snappy still has eight.
