Moving Pigs

Ken raises pigs.  They are a great addition to the farm  Pigs love to dig.  

So, each year Ken decides on the pig project and he sequentially grazes them - they dig and we move them to new ground.  

It is amazing to harness the energy of these four legged rototillers.  They also eat garden culls and plants people do not eat - broccoli plants, lower cabbage leaves, etc  They are smart and tidy animals.

Yesterday we moved them from the spot they had started in two weeks ago.  Now they are near the driveway.  

Oscar, the herd dog likes to monitor their whereabouts and establish his role as their herder.  They know he is on the other side of the fence.

In two or three hours they had already dug up a significant portion of their new space

And last night they were tired and seemed content in their fresh hay
