Spent much of the weekend repairing the charged, high tensile fence. Thirty-four inches of snow broke many (many) insulators. We learned too that the charger stopped working and required replacement. Four new ground rods and one, maybe two more to go will improve the fence's functionality considerabley.

This weekend, buyers stopped by to purchase two bottle babies (their dam wasn't producing milk) plus one more from a set of triplets. Two other people stopped by to buy a package: dam and her two nursing kids.

Now three weeks from weaning the piglets are re-introduced to the drove. Their sow wants nothing to do them so they need a home of their own where they can come and go but slip beneath the gate to get away. Mama-sow is amazingly fast and nimble when she wants to keep them away.
