On Sundays I’m sharing some of my favourite posts from the past. This comes from November 2012, when we first live on the farm. These days we have our own boar, and the kids have a good grasp on the mechanics of the birds and bees. This still makes me laugh though!
Over the weekend, Country Boy took our sow (female pig) to our neighbours to have her ‘serviced’ by their boar (male pig). We thought it would be good to have a go a breeding our own piglets at least once. Our neighbour had offered us the ‘use’ of their boar, so all we had to do was get the sow to the neighbours on the back of the truck.
Have you ever had to explain to kids about ‘dancing’ animals? What did you say? When did you have the talk with your kids?
