new piggies ordered
« on: February 14, 2012, 19:48 »
just had my order for our next 3 piggies confirmed.  :) :)

Getting 3 more Berkshires (only born last week),  for pork, and possibly one British Lop for bacon & gammons.

Can't wait, (only 7 weeks to go), just hope it goes as well as our first lot did. ;)

Went to an agricultural auction at Bicker yesterday, managed to pick up another one of those 1500ltr containers that we used to make our first pig house, spent  today washing it out,(had mollasses in it), cutting it and now it is ready for our new arrivals on Saturday.

I managed to outbid the person next to me, and he wasn't none too pleased, so he had to mention in a loudish voice that it probably wouldn't hold liquid anyway, quite smugly in a loudish voice I explained what I wanted it for, soon shut him up, a few people were amazed at my explanation, but thought I had a good idea.

Will post photo's on here as soon as we come home with our "boys".

Went to Bicker auction and never popped into say hello?   :(  If you went up the A17 you went past the end of our road, and if you went up the A52 you would have passed the house!  We are only a mile from Bicker Bar!   :D :D

You said that last year!   :lol: :lol: :lol:

But honestly, we are only 1 mile down the A52 from Bicker Bar, would be lovely to meet you one day!  Joy and I have probably met more forum members than anyone else so far!

Annie, we have already met - at the pig and poultry fair last time (or had you and Brian wandered off elsewhere?).
