Free range

Seriously, these pigs are taking the concept of 'free ranging' too far for my liking...
This is my front yard...
Front deck (poor puzzled Pippi dog- they are not scared of her!)
And my front door!
Usually they have a generous piece of paddock fenced off by a solar powered electric fence...but it hasn't been that sunny and well, obviously the battery backup is rather ineffective.
I am abit scared of them (they are pretty big!), Mr. Apple is away today (he's bringing home fence adjustments).
So I have shut the gates and am trying to remain 'alert but not alarmed' while the 3 little pigs have a jolly good forage in my space.


Note to dear friend Tan- do you still want to abandon your city life for a week on the farm- playing in the garden, enjoying the quiet and drinking cups of tea? The reality is not all sunshine and may involve some pig wrangling! On the other hand, if you were wanting to practice your circus skills this may just be the place for you!

  4. That's so funny. And what lovely pigs they are. But I agree, I wouldn't want them at my front door either.

  5. So funny - but I probably wouldn't want them outside my front door either!! Your poor dog probably isn't used to being ignored like that!

    Hope that the sun comes out soon and the fences keep them in.
