May 2012 – Preparing for Pigs

With the veg beds moved, now we’ve been able to sort out the pig pen. Stock wire and stout posts were hammered in and two new gates reinforced with galvanised wire. We couldn’t get a pig arc locally so the nearest thing we could find was a calf arc, which looks much the same just a bit bigger. The outside water tap had to be moved to ensure we had a supply nearer to the pigs’ pen and an old butler sink was brought back into service as a trough. Now at the end of the month, we are waiting to hear from the district vet who has to come and do an inspection, so we can get a herd number. Fingers crossed our two little pigs may be in residence next month.
