I have a beautiful male hog that is tame, raised on a bottle, he was given to me recently as a pet I was told he was a pot belly, and he got here and is not. He wants to breed very bad, and I don't really have a place for him. I will send pictures, he is beautiful red with black dots on him. My guess is he weighs about 200lbs, and is young. If you are interested he is free!!! I just want to see him happy.
Pretty cool......free is always good

My wife and I made some sausage on Friday night of last week. Worked on it from around 6pm til 12pm off and on, with 5 children everything has to an off and on process. I gave some to Matthew, he is a chef at a fine dining restaurant in Aiken, he said it was very good, passed that test, wahoo! We also gave some to my wife's grandparents, Pa Pa said it was the best sausage he had ever eaten, that's awesome. We are making Bratwurst this weekend, i hope it turns out as well as the breakfast sausage.

Butchering went well last night, thanks to Duane and Matthew. It was quite an effort to break down that big of a pig, she was probably 300-350 on the hoof. Matthew and I watched a couple of you tube videos in preparation for the event thanks Healthy Butcher. This really helped get a handle on the main parts of the pig, Matthew kind of new his way around a bit, I did not have a clue. There is still a good bit of work to do, I need to cure the bacon and make the sausage.
This morning after i got to work, Kimberly called and told me I was an Uncle again....what? One of the cows had her calf, not a milker but still great news. We have two milkers that are both due at the end of October, hopefully the children are getting tired of frozen milk that we put up before we quit milking last time.
