    On Friday Bishopschickens and I went to pick up a feeder pig each to raise for butchering. She was my Birthday/Valentines day present to myself. [​IMG] She's 7 weeks old.

    If someone had told me 20 years ago I'd buy myself a pig for my Birthday I would have laughed at them.

    Her name is "Salt" short for Salt Cured Ham. Her brother who is solid black is named "Pepper" short for peppered bacon.
