New Member of the Farm

Rooting up lots of weeds

 I know its been a little time since I last posted on here but I am going to commit to posting our progress on the farm more. 

Today we were able to procure a new special member of our farm.  We went to a small animal auction this morning and sold two buck goats. Fortunately for us, there were not very many goats today and thus the price went HIGH.  I was able to get $80 for one and $70 for the other!!!  We went hoping to buy a piglet as well and right as we were preparing to leave they brought in two piglets.  One was black and one was this little girl.  After some fierce bidding we won her!!! My kids were so excited.  They sang “We gotta pig, We gotta pig, We gotta pig, Hey, Hey, Hey!” nearly the whole way home.

I put it in the big pen by the barn that was full of weeds and she immediatly went to work tilling up the weeds for the roots!  We don’t own a roto-tiller but i think she might be better. 

Im not sure what breed she is but I am going to find out.  It was humorous, Kelly and I sat there and watched her root for almost two hours.  Now all we need is a boar and we will be in the pig breeding business!!!
