ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

FREERANGE. (31/03/16)

I was going to post this yesterday but decided to wait until Call me Dithery got back from his holiday.  I know he is busy today sorting out the death throws of the British steel industry but hope he has a couple of minutes to drool over these little beauties.

The pictures are not of the best but I will try and get some more when they are a bit older. I didn’t want to get too close as I was frightened she would get upset and either eat her babies or eat me.

I think these are wonderful. I’ll not be revealing their location as I want Call me Dave to try and govern for once. It is what he’s supposedly paid for and I wouldn’t want to be held responsible for distracting him or inflicting him on wonderful beasts.
This sow decided to farrow in the dead bracken at the side of the road. Not the safest place for inquisitive little pigs but it is a quiet lane.

She shares her field with half a dozen pigs, two flocks of sheep and several Alpacas. It is grand to see them all getting along together.
Now back to video editing. I hate doing the sound bit.

  2. Aw! What cute little piggy wiggies and you are now their uncle! After all you have always been partial to a nice bit of bacon. Good to see that they are free rangers.

    1. YP, I'm not sure how many there are as she keeps hiding them under the bracken. Enough for a bacon sandwich or two thats' for sure.

  3. That's quite a mix in the colourings of the offspring.
    Dithery won't do much - no profit in steel for his fat cat friends.

    1. John, they are disparate.
      Dithery won't do anything. I have never known a bloke in charge of anything with so little grasp of strategy. He's totally useless.

  4. Spring has sprung. Meanwhile, we have our first daffodil shoots poking through. They are coming through frozen or near frozen ground.

  6. Don't mess with Mama--- I think she'd win. I'm just glad she's not running for office. Love the shots. Oh---- my pix were not HDR.

    1. Bill, I am assured she is friendly but I'll wait a week or so to find out.

  7. The only thing saving them pugs is the fact they're North of the border, Tories are too scared to venture to far away from London.

    1. Douglas, they are safe now as Dithery has gone to America to sort out bombs. I would have thought he had more pressing business but what the hell.

  8. Great shots of the pigs, we have the wild boar down here and not too many get hurt on the roads

    1. Peter, I keep hearing that your wild boar are very naughty. Ripping up picnic areas, eating dogs and children, swallowing cyclists whole, etc.
