Our piglets are spoiled.
Surrounded by a high walls, their garden is almost wind proof. A rare abundance of bushes and trees, provide shade and shelter.
Nonetheless, the hatchlings and I been brewing a new project.
Years ago, I called around, when we first discussed pigs, to buy a pig ark.
Quotes of £380 - 570, were banded about. We quickly realised that after shipping, we would be spending a good £1000 to house our pigs.
That is not realistic for us.
I dithered and fussed and eventually settled on a wood framed ark. We are not farrowing or over wintering.
So the hatchlings and I squeezed as much wood as we could into our little car.
And we built this,
for £37, including screws.
Whether the pigs use it or not, we had a great time building, and we didn't break our budget.
Now, I can't wait to paint it.... I'm thinking polka dots!
