Meet Bill

22 Sep

We’ve had a few lady-pigs around the farm that are getting a mite lonely.
They’ve recently been lobbying me to get them a boyfriend.

I relented, and borrowed a boar from the fine folks at the Lake City Catholic Worker Farm. Meet Bill the boar.
The ladies have all been making his acquaintance, which apparently involves squealing at him nonstop.
Poor Bill spent the first couple days here being harassed and harangued by a bevy of young ladies that just wouldn’t leave the handsome young fella alone.

Bill is adjusting to his temporary digs quite well.  He even figured out a few places that he can go hide out from the ladies.

In a few weeks his job should be done and he’ll be returning home.  If everything goes well, we’ll be farrowing our first litter of piglets by February.
