blog-sowEver hear the phrase “Sometimes life is what happens when you are making other plans?”  I purchase pigs regularly for our sausage making enterprise, and almost always have some in the barn.  Imagine my surprise yesterday to come in and find my little herd had grown by 6!  Someone had shipped a pregnant sow to me and no one had caught it.  An abattoir is not typically known for warm and fuzzy feel-good stories, but here was a little moment of grace.  We got out the heat lamp and moved Mom and kids to a private suite.  Everyone is doing well and going back to the farm next week.  No doubt they will come back up one day, but we won’t dwell on that.
