let the pig adventures begin!

We have 5 new additions to the farm today... pigs from Lisa and Randy of Hillsboro! (A big thank you to them for their pig loading assistance and general pig info sharing!)

They made it through the drive to Yamhill just fine (despite a downpour in Cornelius) and managed to give us a whole lot of exercise by escaping during the first 5 minutes we had them in their pen. Thanks to Allie (our herding dog), we rounded them up, and thanks to our layers (who donated a fence), we upgraded the fencing and they seem to be contained.

When we left them tonight, they were grunting, squeaking, and munching on grass.

Please stick around, little pigs!
