I promised there would be more pigs!
Here are some of the new additions to our Idaho Pasture Pig herd. We are only the third breeder in New England to work with these awesome pigs. I believe there may now be four of us total -- two in New Hampshire and two in Maine. HUGE thanks to the newest breeder in Maine -- her name is Pam, and I do not even know her farm name or I would post it here -- for delivering these cuties!
The big pigs are our first two gilts, Paris and Pancakes. They have grown a bit, eh? The one in front of them is one of our two newest gilts. She still needs a name.
Here is one of our two boars! He has some growing up to do. He still needs a name as well.
Here is the second new gilt (the one who was in the last post). This one is tentatively named Panthera. Going for a "P" theme, here. Yes, she is an Idaho Pasture Pig! They come in lots of different colors. She will be our only IPP who does not have any wattles.
Originally, we had them separated from the big pigs, but the pigs had other ideas. I am so glad that the big ones decided to unite the herd, because they have socialized the little ones -- the new arrivals went from being totally skittish to being curious and friendly, just like the breed is known for!
K writes this stuff, for some reason that has yet to become apparent.
