Fairoaks Mermaid and Marjorie1876 viewsFairoaks Mermaid has just given birth to ten piglets. I took this photograph from the door of her pig ark. Marjorie is looking in the little hatch, and from Marjorie's viewpoint you can see the piglets. Mother was calm and considerate throughout. For those who think pigs are dirty, look at how she gleams, and look at how clean she keeps her home.
Kevin, Marjorie & Andy as Midwives1089 viewsOur Berkshire sow is giving birth to her litter of piglets. It's a glorious early summer afternoon, and Marjorie, Kevin and Andy are acting as the midwives.
Kune Kune - Gloucester Cross4510 viewsDon't ask me how, but somehow Chase's kune kune pigs mated with our Gloucester Old Spot boar, and this piggy is the result. When I tried to take her photo she kept trying to hide behind the water trough. I guess I can't blame her for not wanting to have her photo snapped.
Kune Kune - Gloucester Old Spot Cross1209 viewsLooks like something from Star Wars.
Betty (Gloucester) and Friend1801 viewsBetty, our Gloucester cow, is hopefully a week or two away from having her first calf. Here she is with one of our Aberdeen Angus heiffers. Note the roof thatching in the background. Rural England on an early summer afternoon.
Tamworth Curiosity2182 viewsWe were in one field watching the Berkshire pig give birth. Naturally, the Tamworth pigs in the next field were nosy --- particularly if any of our activities involved food. Convenient how the snout can go through stock fencing.
Nosy Pig1234 viewsTamworth pig showing me that his nose can go right through the fence, thank you.
Watching the Berkshire Sow2498 viewsThe pig ark has a small window at the end so you can see what's happening at the other end of the ark. Our Berkshire sow was giving birth to a litter of ten piglets.
Westbrook at the Powick Parish Fete1367 viewsWe cooked Scottish | Kobe burgers at the Powick Parish Fete, May 28 2005. We also brought Westbrook Peter Lad (born 1 March 2005) --- our Berkshire boar. He was fine --- as though going to a fete was something he did every week.

The New Pig Lawn1065 viewsStill growing, with our seeds from Hurrells. They promise that the resulting turf will be pig resistant -- but for how long?
The Thundering Herd2844 viewsI had to keep running in front of them, and they'd just chase me faster and faster.
