I take your point Langdon...but I still feel that the programme lacked balance and showed 'smallholders' in a poor light...and as I've already said, that's only my opinion and others may not agree...that's the best part of being an individual, you don't have to run with the crowd.

One thing for certain...I'm no expert!

All the best to everyone...no matter what opinion you hold

Well done, Cameron, go for it.  You're a very level headed young man for 16!
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Brilliant - go for it Cameron. I maybe 'the mum' but my family were definitely underwhelmed by the idea of pigs - except for my second daughter. But the pigs worked their magic themselves. The thin end of the wedge is a good way to start. :) :pig: :)

I did enjoy watching it and found it inspiring sometimes, some of the people were i think very much getting into the groove of country life and routine. I think he did give some of them a kick up the arris but only when and for ones that needed a few home truths.  I thnk he was frank and passionate about it all.  RUns and hides :D

Tell you something Cameron.I have not seen any pig(s) that don't enjoy ploughing and if you leave them on the plot long enough there is no vegetation left.A tip fence all 4 sides they love seeing if they can dig through the pricklyest hedge into next doors rose garden.They don't seem to bother if its a rough old don't matter plot.Yet another true little tale The Pigs involved were large whites big sows and they were let out into the crew while the rails were replaced in their sty.Left to themselves all day When the lads went to put them back in the sty they had torn up a good half of the crewyard old fashioned concrete floor dam it ??? ??? ;D

it dosn't matter if (when i get them) they break through the fencing, our land backs onto a 10acre field of permanant pasture, so there is nothing to harm, our nearest neighbours are half a mile away so don'tt think they will cause to much of a disturbance, half of the land is straight grass and the other is rough cooch grass and brambles etc, a general dumping ground.   ;D  i think the breed i will go for is Tamworths, as i have allways been drawn to the breed

Be careful Cameron...Tamworths are notorious escapees...THEY WILL FIND AWAY OUT...and they are difficult to catch...if they take to the hoof you could lose them...seriously!

Try a lop eared breed...they are much calmer and less likely to take off...whichever you choose I'm sure you'll make a good herdsman.
