There was a bad smell in the barn for the whole two days she was ailing and after she died the smell went with her. All the others are fine so far, arguing and eating and pushing each other around as usual. Nothing unusual but I will be on high alert for a few days yet.
Lets hope it is not something that will spread. They have a big inside space and a big outside space and everything is kept clean but little pigs die fast.
Ah well. These things always happen on the weekend don’t they. I will talk to the vet about it tomorrow but I have nothing to tell him. She did not even have a temperature.
God said No. One of our low days. But you get that when farming. Today will be better I hope.
We did not get a lot of snow yesterday, though they forecast piles of the stuff, we got off lightly. Last night the temperature rose and everything started dripping. This sounds nice until we look at the forecast and see that everything will freeze again tomorrow. I think I might need my Swedish sprig boots this year – I need to find them and dust them off.
I am very much looking forward to going to Canada for Christmas (if all goes well) and a proper break. I might just sleep the first few days! My arms ache – I think the hay bales are getting heavier this winter!
I am going to go hang out with Sheila.
