Yes... it's me in the field with my piglets! The Guest Hogger this Friday evening.
Maisy is my name and I was born at Le Logis, Cours in France. I am a Pedigree Berkshire Sow with attitude! and have a posh Pedigree name - registered as 'Le Logis Lady 4 " however, you can call me Maisy or Maise, I answer to both.
I live a happy and free life here in France - often sharing a paddock with my litter sister Daisy, who I argue with all the time - just like sisters do, and our mate "Lucky" the Jones's first Berkshire boar. I am fed twice a day; able to root to my hearts content , and also to spend quality time with my piglets. All stress free...
Likes: plums and extra scoops of pig nuts and my favourite boar is "Lucky"
Dislikes: having my ears bitten by my sister Daisy
Great excitement last week as a Champion of Champion Berkshire boar arrived at Le Logis in France. Accompanied by his breeder, Suzi Westron of Choller Farm in West Sussex who made sure that "Choller Namatjira" took the move to his new French home in his stride.
"Choller" is his herd name and where he was born and "Namatjira" is the bloodline of the boar.
Suzi gave us a lesson on moving a pig with stick and board - looks easy? - come and have a Pig Experience at Le Logis and try it.
Also featured is a lovely Berkshire gilt from the "Louise" bloodline a new line here in France. She is 'in pig" expecting piglets 28 October. Sire is an "Orlando" boar.
