April 23rd - We have named our little Saddleback boar Statham. He's really starting to fill out and now so friendly we are worried he's going to roll over for a belly rub in the show ring. We are also exporting two  British Saddlebacks to join an existing herd in France. Michaela will be doing the trip so that Ollie can plant his nose firmly into his studies in a quiet house. Show entries are also being made thick and fast :) 
March 19th - Going through our selected pigs from the January borns to see if they are still up to par. We have a very nice MW gilt (Fearne), a beautiful Saddleback gilt (Mini Molly) and a nice tall Saddleback boar as yet unnamed. We prefer the markings on his litter brother but alas his underline is a bit skew whiff.
March 16th - Brooke finally had her litter of 9 by Ralph. She sadly squashed two but the remaining 7 are growing like weeds.

March 2016 - Piglets born, piglets due, the first pig course of 2016 was a great success and now our attention has turned to pig show entries. Its going to be a busy year AGAIN!!
November 2015 - we have sold both the flock of sheep and the herd of Boer goats - sad but being mad busy in my 'proper job' and Oliver starting at Vet School means we have had to seriously cut back on the animals we have. What it has done though is made us really look hard at the pigs we have kept to ensure we start off again in the spring with the highest quality stock. I have to say it is very quiet here at the moment. The last pig course of 2015 has been hosted and we will now hunker down until the spring. We do have litters of pigs due in January to look forward to though :)
