Last week we spent a huge amount of time building an enclosure and hut for some pigs!!!
All the elements of their housing other than the electric fencing have been repurposed from things we had in the barns, leftovers from other building projects or reclaimed items like a collection of doors that a neighbour was throwing out!!
It was all a bit Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall with his first River Cottage piglets as James collected them in a dog crate in a fiesta!!
James has set up a solar powered electric fence and they are such good piglets and have learnt the fencing very fast thankfully!!
They have already made themselves a wallow into the cool earth and have been happily rooting through the earth in areas for roots etc!!
