You will get a laugh out of this lot. A chip off the old block!
I finally took Geraldine up to the loft to bond with Mrs Flowers. I checked on them multiple times in the afternoon but other than Geraldine calling out for me, or her turkeys, there were no problems, Mrs Flowers did not bother her at all. Not that I could see anyway.
In fact they all seems intrigued rather than aggressive. I love to play with Geraldine, she settles so obviously when there is a human with her.
Naomi and her baby Little at nap time…
I am late this morning so must hurry along.
Hugo and I are working hard on splitting and stacking wood again today. Then we will begin to work further on barn maintanence – an ever lasting job with two barns.
But first I am going to jog back up and laugh at the piggies again! Aren’t they hilarious. I call this The Clamour.
I cannot work out which one is favourite. Maybe this one?
I hope you have a lovely day.
Oh those pig photos are hilarious!
aren’t they a joy!! c
Good morning! I think a piggie calendar might be in order here. They are such characters!
Enjoy your day
I certainly need to get onto the christmas calendar! and one of these will be in it for sure! c
What a gorgeous lineup! They look like a row of rather homely country girls waiting to catch sight of a film star, or perhaps the chorus line of an amateur theatre production. Lovely big healthy happy piggies. Love your work, Miss C! That lovely photo of Naomi makes me want to stick a big red rose in her chic red collar, she’s such a belle of the barn.
I love that word Homely.. morning kate! c
Me too! Morning, Miss C.
I like the one where there are four standing. Total boy band shot. Pork Direction? The Backstreet Plonkers? …. Oh I’ll be swirling names in my head all day 🙂
Back street Plonkers!!
The Backstreet Boars
they are hysterical!!!!!!!!!
did you see the cow looking back shot I put in there for you? c
Oops I didn’t, gonna look now! I often see shots that look like exactly what I need, it’s a treasure hunt!
That is PERFECT!!!!!!
Oh the Piggies!!! I love the one with the Quads! Looks like a calendar shot to me!!! ” Mommy!! I’m hungry”!!! And the “Glamor” shot! Good one too!! I’m running for Miss Piggy!!!
Two miss piggy’s in there! c
Snorts! All of the piggies are my favorites 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
morning little pig bacon..
5 mini-hop& pop’s!!!! So stinking adroable!!!! I think Naomi may turn out to be a good momma cow someday.
I think Naomi is going to be great too, when i feed Little she stands next to me and waits for my to rub her head with my free hand, such a nice wee heifer.. c
They must know you are on the way with food, right? They certainly are good looking pigs!!! 🙂
I had a bucket of milk behind me.. PLUS I had forgotton to get their bowls out of the run at a quieter juncture – you can imagine that craziness! c
Yes indeed!!! 🙂
I kept expecting the pigs to break out in song! 🙂
The noise is extreme, almost all in Top E!! c
Pigs are such posers … and camera HAMS. ;O
Do you miss your pigs? c
Bert and Bernice were wonderful and I am glad they went together to a good home. I do not miss the stages from breeding through market. If we had better facilities to handle all the stages, it would be so much smoother. I doubt we are “done” with pigs, though. Just temporarily realigning our plans. Thanks for asking!
I just have the fields so it is all pretty wild!! but thankfully it is a short period.. c
Poppy’s progeny is precious and precocious! Good for a wide smile.
Morning Kim – hope all is well in your library! c
I read diane’s comment as “good cooking pigs” – my next eye test is long overdue! The pictures are all sublime – I snitched one for poetic inspiration.
We have a lull between two storms today, bright sunshine, but tomorrow is going to be hair-raising.
Gosh, you are having spring weather in the autumn!.. c
They’re waiting their turn on the runway. The high heels could use a bit of polish.
I passed your comment on and they are back in the Green Room sprucing up! morning Pete.. c
The piggies are marvellous. Dancing from pure joy. Kind of cabaret, cool, crazy, super! A pity that we could not get the tones. Must have been very exciting. Wow – and their faces! They do that for you, Celi. As a gift for your constant care. So, so lovely. Or kind of Happy birthday-singing. It’s not your birthday today, is it? – Are they cute! So nice. Yes, laughing out loud, as you, as the piggies did… great. Thank you.
Like your little herd. Re-united. – And of course napping sweethearts…
Take care and enjoy your day!
Napping sweethearts indeed. c
Thanks for starting my morning with laughter. Love the piggies.
They made me laugh out loud when i saw that shot on the screen too! c
Funny piggies! I can’t decide between the boy band and the last shot…which almost looks like they posed with one arm out. Next they’ll be jumping and escaping like their mama. Naomi and Little are so sweet.
Today i am going to take them out into the field – Stand BY!! c
Jumping Jacks, for the piggies 🙂 The calendar page could be the top collage just as it is. Laura
I hope the gate can take it! Morning Laura! c
Lordy, it’s only 9 a.m. here in sunny Sacramento and already all the good comments are taken. Prodigious pigs. Pinup pigs. Plentiful pigs. You get the idea. Love ’em. You are making a difference in this city girl’s outlook. Heheh. Gayle
Pin Up pigs!! great! c
“Pin Up pigs”…. hahaha…. more LOLs 🙂
I’m having a hard time remembering what has happened to Queenie.
She went to another farm
Yes Queenie was sold on to a farm with a Bull. We were having trouble breeding her using AI. c
Wow. Queenie’s Bobby really is a big fella!
Those piglets make me laugh! Silly swine!
He is and nice and docile too really which is lucky.. I often think what a good move it was selling Elsie on.. being able to wander about the field is such a joy.. c
Geraldine has her flock at last. I wonder if she has noticed the difference from her “other” flock? I vote for Backstreet Plonkers! Morning
She is not happy yet, but I am sure she will settle, I am off to check her again now, she really loves people – I should bring her in the house! c
I think I like the four in-a-row standing, clamouring for you and your bucket of treats!
I can imagine Geraldine curled up on the couch like a cat! The Plonkers are hilarious. In Australian there’s a bluegrass band called The Pigs (I linked to it on The Kitchens Garden FB page). Your porky gals/guys, the real deal, could be the US franchise, with an additional band member. They’re such hams! Lovely pics today, very Farmy, just what I need 🙂
geraldine actually curls into my lap like a cat, i have tried to take photographs of it for you but it is hard, (I need one of those selfie sticks!)
if you could get them to wear Santa hats you could make a fabulously hilarious Christmas card….they are truly wonderful piggies!
Work will be easy today but I wonder how productive I shall be laughing all along . . . . Oh, the first ‘boy band’ photo has found its permanent site as my computer background – looks oh so funny – just pipping Boo looking thru’ the crack in the door, which is my all-time favourite! Half-way thru’ September but there still seems such plentiful grass for the cows to enjoy . . . may it last a quite a bit longer . . . meanwhile I got my first lot of summer herbs and vegetable plants home y’day: will be planted with love . . .
Brilliant shot of the piggies – looks like a publicity shot for a new version of Animal Farm!!
Your piggy gang absolutely looks like they’re about to burst into barbershop or Disney tunes, dance moves included. Yay for piglets! Yay for you!
Oh, good heavens the Porcine Review. Well known on the rural circuit. Always met with gales of laughter by the audience. What a crew!
Happy piggies, 😊
Dancing piggies? Poppy is proud, no doubt. Love Naomi and baby Little. 🙂 Mrs. Flowers will give Geraldine peahen lessons.
Oh piggies! Can’t help but smile
It looks like they might be looking to climb over and escape 😉
