.....and for the record, I'm also a 'juggler'.....Full time job within NHS.....groan, groan and double groan......but my salvation is our 12 acre smallholding 1 mile up the road.   Spent 100 years competing with horses....but then discovered pigs.....!!!  And hubby insists, yes insists this is ready for release:  www.websdc.com/passionatelypigs/      ;D :D :D :D :D

Hello
We have taken the plunge to go completely self sufficient this year and we have added several animals to our collection, we are picking up a gloucester on tuesday due to litter in march and we are very excited - there is something about pigs isn't there....  Originally we were from East Sussex but now in France and loving it.

Your site is really lovely

Thank you Donna - I run on 4star coffee (all day) to keep me going !!!  Very unhealthy - but need the fuel!    Oh how I long to give up work......well the political, redtaped, NHS variety anyway.    :)

Devon is beautiful - we wanted to move to there - France is very similar.

Have a great day

Wow. I love your site - the photos are gorgeous.

I know exactly what you mean about pigs being addictive. We got our first pair of Oxford Sandy & Blacks in November and I'm already pining for more.

I wonder how many you could squeeze on to 24 acres???  ;D

Welcome. Look forward to hearing all your news.
