Winnipegger wants to use sheep for eco-friendly lawn trimming business

Sheep Farming

A Winnipeg man raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he swapped his lawnmower for a group of sheep.
Clint Pinder owns a home in St. Boniface and has a rural property near Stony Mountain where he keeps some animals — including sheep.
"I'm not a big fan of mowing the grass, and the sheep are, so I figured I would bring them and see how they did on our lawn," said Pinder. "They were eating the grass and really enjoying it!"

Pot Belly Pigs Join the Zoo

This is our new animal to raise here on the funny farm. We got into pigs with Emergency Preparedness in mind but it quickly became the usual petting zoo for hubby.

We started out with 3 pigs and now have over 20. Hubby refuses to use them for food although that was how he got me to agree to have them in the first place. 

So we ended up  with pig pets. But they are cute even though they constantly break out by climbing over or digging under their fencing.

Then they end up at our door looking for company and treats. 

If you want to see something funny, check out our video of the baby pigs screaming when picked up.
