The other day I took the door from between Sheila and Poppy’s areas. Leaving only a piece of hog fence between them. They had touched noses a few times between the bars, and it all looked promising so today I opened the hatch in the fence and let Poppy in with Sheila.
Poppy leapt forth and practically turned somersaults around Sheila. Cartwheels. Jumping Jills! She squealed and ran to and fro.She got a few wacks for biting at Sheilas ears and a growling for touching the hooves. But all in all I was thrilled with the result. I left feed in Poppy’s smaller pen and her light on in case she wanted to return but when I slid about the barn in the dead of night to check on everyone she and Sheila were sleeping together.
Isn’t that just lovely.Sheila finally has a baby. Well everyone else seems to have one. Speaking of sleeping pigs I saw Tima asleep on Boo’s foot twice today. Boo stays very still and wide awake as the little kunekune sleeps with his round head resting softly on Boos foot. No photos yet of that one I will get it.
I am also trying to get a shot of Marcel sleeping with Daisy’s Bobby. They are a very contented pair and O have quite given up trying to get Marcel to settle with the other sheep. He wants to be with his Bobby.
So when the sheep go into the rat house paddock I am going to put Marcel AND the Bobby in with them. Mama likes calves too.
As I write, Tima is resting on my clown pants right at my feet. She is a very pig headed piggie and squeals when I try to take them back so I can dress to go out to work. This animal is nothing like what I expected. Nothing at all. She has the mind of a dog.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
Your friend on the farmy
