Breakfast time in the barn.
The pigs are now well and truly settled in their winter quarters. They have made the barn into a real home for themselves and now that the outside space is all fenced off with the new electric fencing they are in piggy heaven.
They spend many happy hours digging all the deep rooted weeds out of the ground, something we are extremely grateful for. They can turn the picture above into the picture below in a couple of days.
They have until the weather turns nice again to get this bit of land under control for us. Lovely Hubby is going to use this area as part of his new worm venture, and will be building the worm beds here in the late spring/early summer of this year.
We use the little ante room of the barn to store the bedding and pig food as well as our chopped wood for the house.
And after a morning of digging for those tasty roots and weeds, the girls troop back to their cosy bedroom for a nice little siesta, after all it will be tea time later and they will need their energy to eat again.
