Hello from the Happy Hippy

I'm new to the site (but not to pigs;) ) and thought I'd say a quick 'Hello'.
I live in Lanarkshire, Scotland along with my hubby Bruce, our 4 kids and huge German Shepherd Boris.
I'm on my family farm, sadly much of it is still redundant, but slowly we are making inroads into getting it up and running again and what better way than with pigs ? We breed and raise Kune Kune's, Large Blacks and Berkshires, and hope in time, to expand the breeds we keep and numbers of each. But with 4 kids in tow (the youngest only being 6 months) nothing ever happens as quickly as I'd like ;) :D
In my spare time (yeah, like I get much of that with all my kids!) I enjoy crafting, cooking, gardening and playing Texas hold 'em poker. I also design and engrave slate signs which I sell to try and bring a bit of extra income in.
I look forward to hearing all about you and hopefully making some usefull contributions to the forum.
