A quick trip out this afternoon to visit Mr and Mrs Pig the neighbours, their boar Alfie and their heavily pregnant sow Little Kim. Here’s a typical extract from Mr Pig’s blog:

How old will he have to be before he begins “work”? I was sixteen myself. Does he have to court then marry each sow in turn? What if Alfie’s gay? I mean – some pigs are just born gay aren’t they?

Being modern pigs they have their own Facebook page where you can follow the ins and outs (oo-er missus, put that chicken away!) of pig husbandry. Excellent.
