Sorry it took me a while, I've just been so terrible busy.
Thanks for visiting my site but it really is not working right now - and I had no time to work on it. Maybe tonight. I love your site, too. I love your stories about everyday life on the farm. I will visit your site again when I have more time. Maybe we could do something together? Can I steal some of your stories and post them on my web with the link to your site so people who visit my site could also visit your site? Let me know - if you agree, I would need your name.
I don't know what my pigs are. Every year we buy them from a farm animal zoo nearby. Pigs are really easy to raise - they would eat anything, and you also can spoil them like we did ours - they are almost our pets (only until it's time to make some sausages!)
I don't think that hot temperature would bother them much, just provide them with some mud and they'll be happy like pigs in mud. Haha.
This year for the first time we had a health issue with our pigs - one of them got black diamond disease. We had to kill it because to treat it would be too expensive and then what? We wouldn't want to eat it anyway.
By the way, tomorrow (Saturday) is that dreadful "sausage making" day - every time about this time of the year my hubby swears he will never again raise pigs because he gets so attached to them - until the zoo early in the spring calls us again and he can't wait to get more little piggys (or is it piggies?). Anyway, hope to hear from you soon,and you have a wonderful day, too!

  Good Morning!
Hey! I've been reading your site and absolutely love it! The animals are great and the stories are wonderfully entertaining! I'm curious - are those Hampshire hogs? I'm not real familiar with them, but I am really wanting pigs on our place again. I have been considering Large Blacks, but yours are so cute, I may rethink my original plans. Are they easy to raise? Do they have any health issues? Do you think they would do well down here in the South where the temps get so exasperatingly hot? Let me know - either here or on the Farm Wife. Have a wonderful day!

Thank you. I will visit your web right now; I am very interested because it looks like we have similar hobbies and interests. If you would like, you can visit my web, too (sorry the spelling, not my greatest talent!)

Right now we have around 48 girls and two roos. But my husband called a little while ago and wanted to know if I wanted 8 white leghorns that someone is giving away. We can always find room for more! As for my hobbies, I would really like to resurrect as many of the 'old' crafts as I can. It's true - when you have a farm, you really are married to it, which is why I chose that name. If you would like, come visit me at thefarmwife.com, and you can see some pictures of our place -- and three of our new baby calves!
