There Goes the Neighborhood

Large Black Hog boar Tater enjoys socializing with the neighbor's horses.  These equines are not quite sure what to think about this inquisitive boar's friendly overtures.  I suspect they think the neighborhood is going downhill, being run over by four-legged brillo pads with tusks.

He is one big pig.

Little Pig

These Large Black Hogs are enjoying the herd life.

I haven't tasted sausage like this since I was a kid on my grandfather's farm!

 Here's what one satisfied CSA shareholder has to say about our pork:
Hey, Kimberly!!!!

I would say, "All I can say is WOW" except that I keep saying other stuff
like OMG, how can something taste this GOOD?!?!?!?

First, gotta tell you, I haven't tasted sausage like this since I was a
  kid on my grandfather's farm. So far, we have been delighted with EVERYTHING we've cooked! This meat is AMAZING!!!! Hope your biz is going great, because this is the best thing since sliced bread.

Q:  How do you convince two shoats to squeeze back through the impossibly small hole in the fence through which they managed to escape just this morning, after spending an apparently delightful wriggly tailed day of romping with horses (and by some miracle not managing to get stomped), seeing the sights, evading coyotes, badgering chickens, and munching what little green stuff there is available in this drought?

A:  You make high pitched scary sounds and raise both hands, just slightly above your head, wriggling your fingers wildly, in imitation of a pig eating monster.  Which sends both little swine—who are not yet old enough to turn around and snort in uproarious indignation at just how lame you really are—trumpeting in porcine terror, wriggling straight back through that same unbelievably narrow hole to their 600-pound momma who is anxiously awaiting their return on the other side.
