A new driving hazard

Going up to Dyfed Paermaculture Farm yesterday morning for a workday I came across this family on the road.

Wandering sheep are quite common, cows less usual but nothing to be surprised at, but Pigs are a new one for me! Apologies for the poor picture quality – taken from inside the car.

    We are regularly halted by roaming herds of cattle – occasionally goats – but pigs, never. This is a lovely photograph.

    What a lovely encounter. Remember the two pigs that ran off en route to the abattoir. Hope these weren’t running away for the same reason.

    I bet there’s some farmer out and about wondering where his bacon has run off to!

      They wern’t there when I drove back so either they had made good their escape or had been rounded up.

    We have all sorts here when we go through the New Forest. Pigs usually in the Autumn for pannaging though.

      I suppose that is the joy of common land.

    Some friends with a farm had their pigs run off. They were eventually rounded up on a country lane and did end up as bacon, I’m afraid.

      I assume that will be the eventual fate of this family – but not just yet!
