This large black hog has her own built in sherpa hat.
If this large black hog plows enough snow, there's bound to be a delicious egg in there somewhere.
This is our first real snow, and this morning it was a frigid 7 degrees, and these two Large Black Hogs don't seem to be missing a beat. That's one of the beauties of the Large Black Hog Breed. They are hardy and thrive outdoors, which goes against the whole factory farm paradigm, and which is one of the reasons why these wonderful hogs are on the "Critical" list at the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
I feed before sunup, as I've got to get to the office in Santa Fe, and they come straggling out of their toasty stall in the barn nearly every morning to greet me, straw dangling from their ears and whiskers. Also, to politely inquire if I have any eggs on me and could they please have one or five or six.
