TRENTINI: Well, it’s kind of a funny story. I started out with just chickens, because I like the fresh eggs every day, and then I went to a chicken swap, and then the next guy was selling alpacas for pretty cheap. And so I had the pasture, I had the space, so I said, what the heck. So I got them, and then I got the sheep to kind of mow down the pasture a little bit and eat it down. And they’ve all been kind of living together and having a good time together. And then Abigail, the pig, I rescued. She was supposed to be a miniature pig, only supposed to be about 30 pounds, and now she’s about 160 pounds. So I think I got duped. But it’s OK. She’s part of the family now.
