Agathe has photographed these two strapping specimens, Bacon and Ham.
They have grown from sweet little piglets into handsome sows, who charge to the fence when we call to them “Here, Pig Pig Pig Pig Pig Pig!”
They're primary purpose is to root out a garden bed from the rocky, root-filled ridge top.
Of course beyond that we hope they will live up to their names.
And for the warm days of summer, we want them to enjoy their lives here with us.
Selwyn and Lillia both love to pass them greens through the fence.
I've come to look forward to the twice daily visits to their pen to feed and water them.
They like to be scratched where the mosquitoes have bitten their thick skin, and they are generally quite affectionate with us.
