The Final Four

The piglets weigh about 60 lbs. and have a couple of weeks before slaughter. So they should reach 80-100 lbs. by that time. Lots of sweet potatoes in their future!

The piglets for our upcoming dinner are muscular, as this photo clearly shows. Shelly points out that the dimple above the tail is a sign of a very meaty loin.

I really enjoy being close to these pigs. When I am with them I don't think about them as being food. This interaction is new to me.

Tamara and Katie

I have a special connection to Katie. She's a little more agressive and animated. I get that.
