Our Piggys


I took a few piggy pics this morning. We've added one more feeding trough for the little guys and gals.....they're getting bigger and a few of them were starting to "hog" the trough!






Dayum, they are cute!









This little one looked up at me right when I was taking the pic....

I have to turn over and move the troughs pretty much every feeding now. They are beginning to play with the troughs and try throwing them around!

Wow I haven't been in here since I got sick - a lot has been going on! The piggies look like they have really grown too!

Cute pigs!

I remember my Mom, Dad and brother raising five pigs ... the best part ... Mom rendered out the lard and used it for deep fat frying ... cake donuts and bread donuts ... oh my! So good. And French fries too. Lard really is the best deep fat frying lard ... actually way better than those vegetable oils they pass of on us these days and better for you too.

That's a lot of pigs. Are you going to sell some when they get to market weight?

That's a lot of little piggies for one family to eat. Are you eating them all?

Annie said...

Hi Linda, glad you are feeling better and able to check in over here!

Cicero, I haven't tried rendering lard...yet. Hopefully this Fall!

Krissy and Christy....we are raising one for ourselves, and the rest are already all spoken for! Friends and family!

Cute pigs, i miss little pigs!!. You need to make the legs longer on your troughs...i have a pig of mine that i had my son build on my blog just look in the pigs label there are 2 pics of the trough. Also if you make them so they aren't flat at the bottom, they won't stand in them.

Angie, the troughs are not flat on the bottom...they are like a V, if that makes sense....

about 10 more days and the piggys will get moved out to their outdoor spot...

Thanks Annie!

Rendering lard isn't very hard, more time consuming though. And it can really smell up the house! You may want to do it outdoors...
