Girls gone wild…the porcine edition

This is what happens when you forget to chain a gate. And when I say “you”, I mean “Matt”. Because I think we all know I wasn’t the one out there doing the pig chores.

So we sent the nearest hired hand out to take care of it. But Ollie-the-boar doesn’t look very intimidated by Ollie-the-girl.

(And believe me, I’m going to hear it for calling her Ollie. Only Tim A. is allowed to call her Ollie.)

Sow 3 comes over to see what Ollie & Ollie are up to.

She doesn’t look very intimdated, either.

This might be the pig version of flipping her the bird.

At this point I had to leave to pick up daughter #1. But despite how these pictures make it look, Olivia actually had all 3 sows back in the pen by the time Matt finished filling the water softener with salt and came out to help. I was quite impressed!

    Just wanted to let you know that I love your blog. This post made me laugh out loud! I hope to have a small farm one day, but with my husband in medical residency we have to live close to the hospital, so the dream of having a home in the country is still many years away. So, I enjoy "virtual farming" through your blog! (Plus I don't get nearly as cold, wet, or dirty that way :)

  7. Suzanne – Ollie's about 700 pounds, and the sows are around 550 pounds. Elizabeth – thanks so much for stopping by :)
