When the time came for Sheila to break out the lippie and hop the limo to visit the Boar, she very quietly followed me onto the trailer, was driven 15 minutes down the road and very quietly unloaded herself. No fuss. Not interested in her treats at all. But very interested in all these little piglets.
The snow got steadier and the sky got darker,
His name is Al. Al is very friendly. He came over for a good scratch and a sniff. A very tame nice young fella. Clean living by the looks of it. I like that both the Herefords and the Berkshires have smiley faces. Al has a very different temperament to the last guy. Mainly because his boss is a young gentle giant of a fella.
By now we were all standing about in a blizzard, snow coming down in waves, forming drifts around our ankles, my lens was dropletty and my feet were frozen and it was time to get home before we were snowed Out.
Sheila has a lovely little bedroom inside the warm pig building and a lovely big clean run with pigs on two sides so she has more company than she has ever had and was in no way agitated at all. Much to my relief.
She is used to being able to get outside, and she can here which is nice, so I am feeling positive. Her mood was very laid back. This is a much better set up. And I can zoom down and visit her and take her treats each day as well.
I know I have said this before by a drifty soft snow is a great leveller. Everything looks beautiful after a wee drop of snow.
Have a lovely day.
Love your friend on the farmy,
