Post Thanks Cai and Em!
Ham and Bacon joined us today, they're going to turn over some garden beds for me and then be appreciated in other ways :D

Cai, you'll be interested to know that the alpacas ran up to the pigs' yard, alerted, then turned and ran for the other end of the paddock where they kept watch :lol: Big babies...

OMG the bacon was superb! I was expecting it to be great, but YUM! The flavour was amazing and Em was spot on, a lot of the fat rendered away and left the yummy bits nice and crispy...

:cheersarm

Glad it was enjoyed, it certainly makes a delightful change from shop bought bacon :)

The boys went up to the abattoir today, so looking forward to some roast pork later this week and bacon and ham next week :D

Pursuading them to get on the horse float this morning was hilarious (for anyone watching, I'd say), but they took the loading, the trip and unloading with no worries - phew!

Excellent news that you managed to load them up we have had some rather hilarious in hindsight experiences with our pigs too... :)
How are the other two settling in, less escaping now?

We've had the new girls in an escape proof yard - we'll move them into their paddock on the weekend and see how much chasing we have to do :lol: although they've certainly settled in well.
