I Got My Pig! – New Animals on the Homestead

What a week! We finally got the pig I’ve been talking about for months. As a surprise, I got two goats with the pig. So the homestead is really growing now. I just don’t think the chickens enjoy having the goats around too much as they keep eating their food.

Bacon - Pig


Kira kept asking what we were going to name him. She wanted something like Porky Pig. At first I told her we weren’t going to name him because he was going to be food but she insisted. So I would like you to meet Bacon! I just hope she doesn’t get too attached to him in the 6 or so months that he will be here. I have to say, I didn’t think that pigs got lonely, but every time I go out to the animals, he starts making a ruckus, like come see me! It’s quite cute.

The goats are pets though. No eating them.

This is Midnight. and the one below is Star. Again Kira named them.

They are both male. So, if I get a few females I could start raising goats too! Oh, I bet my hubby would love that one!  I almost forgot, we also got some new baby chicks. I will have to get pics of them to post soon. The one’s I hatched in the incubator are growing fast and will be introduced to the flock in the next couple months I think.

So that’s what’s been going on around here. What have you been up to? Leave a comment and let me know. I do read every one and try to respond back as well.

Have a great day!




  • Do you know the breed of the pig? Trying to get more information for my future addition. :)

    • I can’t remember for sure, but I think he is a Yorkshire pig. This breed is usually bred specifically for meat.
