New arrivals

Three American Guinea Hogs have joined our collection of farm animals. They are about 3 months old.
Arrival day. The little piggies are a bit shy so they're hiding in the back of the feed room. This is their temporary home while they are trained to the electric wire we use for fencing on pasture.
Day two. They've moved closer to the front and the gate. How quickly they learn the direction from which food arrives!
Training over and they've moved out to pasture. Happy little piggies!

Sofie and the Barred Rock

Sofie, our Akbash livestock guardian dog, visited the young flock of Barred Rock pullets (and a few cockerells) this morning.
