The Fatties

We’re raising five pigs this year.  One of them is for a group of friends in town.  Her name is Gracie.

The other four are named Fatty, Fattie, Fattee and Fattye.

They’re eating fifty pounds of feed per day now.  I misjudged how much we would need so today we’re making the 2 1/2 hour drive, each way, to Sunrise Feeds in Stuarts Draft to restock.

I taped one of the Fatties yesterday and got an estimated weight of 230.  They’re growing fast these days.

We’ll only have them for another month or so.

When they’re gone, it won’t be the same around here without them.
