Dang! The Pigs Aren’t Pregnant

In Uncategorized on September 1, 2009 at 3:30 pm

Well, I kind of knew this was coming… and it was only a matter of time before we have to admit that we were in denial. The GOS (Gloucestershire Old Spots) female pigs are not pregnant. We were all hoping that they were. They are the sweetest natured, most social creatures on the farm, other than the people. Okay, full disclosure, the GOS’s are probably more pleasant some days than the people are.
We now have a few options, none of which are great: purchase (with what money?) more piglets and start over again. Slaughter the GOS’s and make more sausage (with what money?) Keep the GOS’s around as pets (and feed them!) or procrastinate on making a decision for a while…
