Sheila the big pig is getting a bit too big. Fat I think. So Ton and I took her for a little walk. After she had managed to get past the new compost heap, we had a nice wee trot around the back.
She followed me very closely. I could only really get one shot of her as she was at my heel the whole time. Though once she broke into a frolic, which made us all laugh. Sheila, TonTon and I.
Boo stayed inside with Marmalade. He is not calm enough to be around Sheila when she is nervous.
I pruned some mulberry as we walked and we brought it back .
To have with dinner.
Then back to work I went.
Although I know that today it is going to get cold again, these last few days above freezing have been very productive. A reprieve.
I am hoping that Sheila and I can go for a wee walk every day that it is warm enough. We usually walk about the fields doing the chores. This is the first time I have taken her through the gates and down the back where there is long wild grass to munch on and space to run that is not rutted mud and ice. And she was very well behaved. Being cooped up in a paddock must be awfully boring for this pig. Plus she loves to follow me around.
Have a lovely day.
Your friend on the farmy
