Something less depressing!

The last post depresses me every time I look at it so I thought I might post some more cheerful, colourful pictures from happier times.

A sad day

Due to recent changes on the farm we have decided to breed Tamworth Pigss which we can register. This unfortunately means that Christopher, our boar for 5yrs, has had his day. Christopher the gentle giant (weighing 470 kg) was lame on his front right and had lost a tusk, and although he was still capable, he was very uncomfortable walking so the decision was made to retire him from service. He is sorely missed.

Images from Africa

Hi All. I thought I would upload some of the images I have created over the last year from when I was on Honeymoon in Africa. They are in a completely different style to the work I have been doing of the farm animals, for one thing they have an abundance of colour! Anyway this is just three of the many I have done.

I hope you enjoyed them!.

Farmer Jim tryesto blog!

Sooooo. My sister has left the site and I am next to useless when it comes to updating anything! I can already feel the collective sigh of disappointment sweeping through the users looking for another excellent blog to read. Fortunately I have some impressive stories and amusing anecdotes which I am only too willing to boar you with.
I will try my darnedest to at the very least keep you updated with the general life on the farm, from helping the Sow to deliver 7 piglets to spending 3.5 hours trying to load Bernard, our 1.5 ton Aberdeen Angus bull, into a trailer.
As a picture is supposed to say a thousand words i will try and keep posting new ones relevant to the story at hand or just fun ones of the farm!!!
Anyway, enough rambling, I speak soon!
