The summer is flying by and the late wild flowers are filling the pastures. I collect their images on my field walks as I check out the pigs, piglets and forages. There are a lot of piglets out there which is wonderful to see. These are the best months to be born in. The easy time of year.
The upper south pasture where the majority of the south herd is right now looks really good. They are grazing the clovers, grasses and other forages to just the right height and there is a lot of good food for the pigs.
The chickens, geese and ducks walk up the mountain daily to graze in those pastures as well. Interestingly, the poultry skip some of the closer areas that they could get to which have lush forages and instead choose to follow the larger grazers, the pigs, up the mountain. Probably they’re after the insects stirred up by the pigs and manure patties. Our hens forage for a living since we don’t buy store bought feeds for them.
