One of our pigs had a litter last week.
This pig of ours has a history….
This pig wasn’t born here, nor did we buy her…. we sort of “acquired” her. One day last year a guy randomly stopped at our house. He knocks on our door, and states the obvious “you have pigs”. Perplexed I respond “yes, yes we do”. He says “Do you want another one?”
Now, I’m not quite sure how to answer him. Do I have time to think about it? Can I call my husband at work? Can I get back to him? I have so many questions….. many of which I hadn’t even thought up yet. There are so many things to consider, the dynamics of it all, how do I respond…
We figured, in retrospect, that we would grow her a little bigger and just add her to our stash in the freezer. Then we did something you should never do on a farm. We got attached. We liked her. She was sassy, she fit right into the herd. Ok then, we go with it. Our boar, Fonz, really liked her. So now….
