Paleolithic Hand Prints

Red Hand Prints

Yesterday I filled the hand prints and paw prints with red concrete. After this has cured for a week Ben is going to grind them down flush to the floor making permanent prints of our hands in the entry of our butcher shop. Will did the dark charcoal colored concrete coving in the hall so now the cure count down begins.

The joke around here is some future archeologist is going to think we were something like the cave painters in France who left their hand prints on the walls.

Today we primitive herders moved our late gestation sows south to Underhill and grower pigs were herded up the mountain and to the northern pastures, vast herds of lumbering pigs migrating with the seasons along their annual greater routes.

  1. Someone asked in email:
    > When moving pigs from one pasture to another do the older animals lead the way knowing what to expect on other side ?

    They do. That is one of the nice things about the older sows and boars is they’ve been through the rotations before and know the routines, the paths, the migrations around the years. They walk more easily to the pastures. Smaller pigs have never been there and don’t know where to go as well. We lay scent trails to help.
