We had a slightly unanticipated busy weekend here at Balanced Earth Farm!
With less than 24 hours notice, we received word that our amazing (74 y.o) sheep shearer would be arriving on Saturday. We feel so luck to have such an amazing person shear for us, we drop everything to make it happen and we help our other local sheep friends get their sheep ready to! Shearing day is definitely a community.
Before…getting difficult to see!
Then….early this Morning our always stead and stellar sow Panama delivered 4 live piglets! All double wattled. KuneKune babies are the cutest!
Born where Panama chose in a shed with straw. All nursing and doing well. All without us intervening! This is why we love this breed.
