Hogs, Hogs on the Range - Update II

Since the last blog post about extending the pig pen to give them a little more of a range area, I've been able to slowly put together enough fence sections to be able to enclose in a little area for our pig Penelope!

Here they are in place:

And then two sections wired together:

This is our pig Penelope, enjoying her mud pit!

And this is a little video of me coaxing her out into the new yard for the first time, and her starting to wander and root around:

We're thankful to the Lord for granting the provisions and physical strength (those sections are a little heavy :) ) to extend the pig area!

Thank you, bayougirl. We're thankful to the Lord for the idea and provisions. Lord willing, the area will continue to grow over time. It seems to be working just fine so far, thankfully!
