Thought I would introduce myself, my name is Carole and I live in Brittany, France. Have found this site already to be a mine field of information. Started off 5 years ago in France with 10 chickens, now have approx 70, lots of rare breeds which has become an obsession. Also have 3 Mangalitza sows and an unrelated boar which we bought about 3 years ago and being new to pig rearing at that time was certainly an experience, as they look like sheep, or as the local chase think wild boar having a bad hair day. Have some babies too which we are going to test the meat soon!!!!
Since then have become interested in other breeds of pigs and have saddlebacks, large white x bayeaux.
Also have ouessant sheep, fjord ponies and minature goats.Not forgetting ducks and geese.
Looking forward to discussing and learning about keeping animals etc as ,yes again I am an accidential smallholder.
