Fattening the Pig 2015

Today we went out to the farm to prepare our pig for slaughter next weekend. We separated the farmers’ boy from his 4 sisters and walked him up to the pens near the farmers’ house. He followed us happily, like a dog, very sweet.

It was a bit more difficult to separate our girls but eventually we managed to cordon off our killer (Rosemary) while Peppa went in with the boy. It took one second for him to figure out how to mate so hopefully we will have a little of piglets in three months.

In the meantime, Rosemary was happy to munch on the apples we brought to sweeten and fatten her upĀ for next weekend.
