Here Pig, Pig, Pig!

The pigs got upgraded to bigger 'digs' (pun intended) in the barn. They are still able to go outside, and they appear to enjoy the round bale as well.

The three whites are Hampshire x Yorkshire (mmm bacon!) and the boar is Duroc x Hampshire. The three girls will be used for breeding so I named them after three original Ramsay women. If those women knew someday they'd be named after pigs...well...lol

Anna, Dora and Hattie are the girls' names. And they are ever spoiled and squeal for attention ANY time I go to the barn. Which these days is about 20+ times a day....
I had hoped the girls would be bred, but it appears that our boar isn't really interested in breeding the girls, as I see one is season now. *sigh* To find a new one now will be interesting.
