Colorful backdrop for the pig's pasture

Colorful backdrop for the pig’s pasture

October 9, 2015

The color of autumn is really starting to wow us. A few of my sows can be seen laying in the picture below the trees. They are content and seem to be enjoying the cooler days as much as me. Last night, as I hurried to feed my momma pigs out in that pasture, I twisted my knee and fell down. Today, I am limping. My knee is swollen and sore, but it was worth it. I fell coming back from checking on a new mom and her five piglets. They are fine… I am not 😮

I am amazed at how well the clover pasture the pigs are enjoying is holding up. There will even be a week or more grazing for our cow herd once I move the pigs to the woods. The woods pasture is doing well. Hickory nuts and crab apples are falling steady. Those woodland treats will be gobbled up by the sows and their babies. They will romp, play and sleep in the fallen leaves. I guess its like one big party before coming in for winter. It sure makes for happy pigs!

I will chalk up my tumble to the season. You see in autumn,  it’s not only leaves that “fall”…. It’s us nuts too!

Those woods are gorgeous! As well as all that green grass. Any place that gets summer rain and summer green grass is amazing to me. In my neck of California there is no grazing…or rain between May and November it’s all brown 😦

We had a good bit of dry weather this summer, but nothing like what you folks have seen. I hope you will find some relief in my pictures, until you get some rain of your own. Thanks for stopping by, please come again.
