But Tahiti is the noisiest most robust little pig I have ever had here. And she climbs! She has such a fat face I tell her she should have been a boy. They are both terribly friendly, so friendly in fact that visitors are allowed to climb in the pen to scratch their bellies until they lie down.
I am not sure how much longer I will be able to keep Tahiti her in a pen. Soon she will realise that if she raises that back leg she will be over again. In another month or so when Poppy goes to live with her Boar-friend Manu, Tahiti and Molly will go and live with Aunty Sheila. I hope I can keep them in order until then. Then Sheila can take over!
Hullo Sheila my beautiful big girl. Sheila is a one woman pig, she will not even get out of bed to visit with strangers. She just ignores them. But with me she talks and smiles and stands as close as she can.
Sheila’s calendars and the Little Farm Book are selling very well. (Just email me with your email address and I will send you the links and password so you are ready for their christmas sale). I have had a few of the Fellowship tell me how they ordered by joining Mixbook and getting quite a discount for doing so. If you found a good way to order the calendar or the Little Farm Book please let us know in the Lounge of Comments.
Alex. She was in the setting sun here and it turned her colour quite red. She let me stand by her for quite some time yesterday. As usual I did not look at her directly, this is a challenge for most animals, and does not help if you want to make friends and I slowly sidled along until I was right next to her. Soon I hope to get that halter onto her.
Naomi and Alex are inseparable, they have Difficult with them now and soon they will all go out with Lady Astor. Then we will have the second herd settled for the winter.
We had a grim morning yesterday, rain and snow and wind. But by afternoon it had cleared up and they say the sun will be out today. Let’s hope so. Everything is better under a little sun.
I hope you have a lovely day.
