Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Pig in a Tub

I don't even know what to do with this....

I guess "pork stew"?

Totally an inappropriate use of a water trough.... but hey! I got the pigz moved into their new yard. The electric worked and everything! And they are still in the new yard so I guess it's a win. More on the move to the new yard later.

Weirdos.


Pigz. What are you gonna do?

Happy Friday everyone! Are your pigz weirdos?

You might want to dig them a mud hole. They seem to be having a good time.

Pigs love a wallow. They can't sweat other than through their nose, so they use it to cool off. They also coat themselves with mud from the wallow to keep the insects from biting. If you don't create them one then they will knock over their water if possible to create one themselves. Or they will climb in like yours did :)

I guess that your piggy was a bit on the hot side!

I am guessing your pigs are trying to stay cool. Since they cannot sweat they have decided on a swim instead.

Maybe put in a kiddie pool?

hey SBF! thats just it! they hopped in before i could get their mud hole ready! silly pigz.

hi Keith! thanks for stopping by. yep this was their first few hours in the new yard - they were working on a mud spot but i think they liked the tub better.

*OFG hands WCG a pig...* here you go! ha! this really is the funniest group we've had.

I think its all shenanigans, Vera! later on they'd run from the mud pit back to the tub and rinse off. foolishness!

Hi Fiona! thanks for coming over! i think we've answered the question, 'should we let them have access tot he pond?' NO! i think we have swimmin pigz.

hey Nancy! they are digging themselves a new wallow. i think i emptied and refilled that tub 3 or 4 times yesterday. *sigh* pigz.
