To coincide with the arrival of your Lurch T shirts I asked Lori from the Pig Rescue House in Indiana to send us a few photos of Lurch whose name is now Maggie. Lurch was one of a group of piglets whose mother violently rejected them. She and Winnie the tiniest of the piglets went to live with Lori at her rescue home for pigs. Winnie spends most of her time out on a neighbouring farm with goats but Lurch whose name is Maggie cannot get around at all without her wheelchair so she sticks close to Lori.
Here she is in her wheelchair – like all piglets she will not stay still for her photos to be taken!
She has her head up and is looking vital Good little Lurchy.
Lori says she is putting on weight and is off the bottle now and eating regular pig food. Though she does have a worrying overbite but she says Maggie is finding ways to eat and is doing well. Her back legs are growing faster than the rest of her which means they will never work in sinc with her front ones. Luckily her front legs are strong and she can pull herself along with these.
Also she is finally able to hold her head up now without it shaking. Getting some control.
She gets on well with the other pigs at the home and the dog as well and Lori said all the children who visit just love her.
She goes outside in her wheelchair every day and moves at speed around the yard. When she is not driving off to attend fundraisers that is.
Lori thanks you all for raising almost 400 dollars this will help her with the ongoing expense of her wheelchairs. Being a registered rescue home she gets free vet care which is a wonderful bonus.
Today I am working on the bread page – I am excited to share the tips I collected from Zack who trained for four years in culinary school and is passionate about food and bread making. But making a page that is in linear and correct is quite different from my usual free flow writing!
Have a lovely day. Talk to you tomorrow
