Ever seen a pig yawn?

Now you have!

We bought 8 sows and boars from Black Sheep Farms on Saturday.  And they are the cutest things I've ever seen.  I've never had pigs before, but Jon has when he was growing up on the farm.  I love to listen to their little grunting sounds, especially as you get closer to them.  And they've already started rototilling the temporary area we have them in now.

The four sows are due to be farrowing soon, which always makes life more interesting!  Is it sad that when I look at them I get hungry for bacon and ham?

Those look like mangalistas. Is that right?

They aren't mangalistas, but Guinea hogs! I had to google the mangalistas and they look a lot like these guys. All that curly hair...

Last I looked the guinea hogs were hard to come by. I'm glad to see that they are making a come back.
