Reason #3,278 that I could never keep the Law

The latest addition to our farm, five Hampshire feeder pigs (one is a little girl pig and might be a permanent resident)

I admit it. I love these magical animals that give us bacon. And sausage. And pork chops. And ham. And innumerable other yummy delicacies.

Mmmm. Magical animal.

My wife and I had three hundred of these "magical animals" at one time in our early married life; Large Whites and Landrace.

They could teach some humans quite a lot:)

We thought they were great too. Far too easy to become attached to them and feel sad about sending them of to the abattoirs.

John, we were expecting Durocs based on the ad but were surprised a bit with Hampshires when we arrived but they are still full of yummyness. I have never been a big fan of the white hogs but they certainly do out reproduce the darker breeds!
