This time they are younger, smaller, and a lot more vocal as in squealers. But, they are so cute.
Yesterday, Becky purchased four Tamworth cross, 6 week old, piglets. Now, her total equals six, future breeding , gilts. She brought them home in the back of her pick-up. Glenn helped her unload them, by hand, into her shed. Ear-splitting squealing accompanied the process.
I have not been privy to pigs in my past. I am amazed at how noisy they are. They walk with a grunt, they stand with a grunt, they follow each other around with a grunt, they eat with loud, smacking and chewing and they drink with much slurping. I have not seen them sleeping yet.
Now, my job is to name the six. I can handle that task. Since all six have English breeding, I thought they deserved proper English names. At the moment, no definite decisions have been made. Any suggestions?
