We are now all free to carry on with our lives. And we will incorporate the fat little potbelly into the life of the farmy where he will live happily ever after. Though still in a lot of pain it looks like he is going to be OK.
Just before the vet arrived yesterday morning Wai went outside and moved his bowels. Isn’t that just like a pig. So A OK in that department and nothing more needs to be said about the poor pigs toilet habits.
The vet said his skin is improving though he was surprised at how hard the plates are that cover the little pig in this terrible armour. We know it will be a very slow process.
Three times a day : Exercise and Emollient. Wait for the skin to peel away before snipping. This will go on for a very long time. Keep the high fiber diet.
And I had not fully processed that there will be no summer grazing for Wai – only evening and early mornings – his skin will not take the sun at all not for months and possibly a year. So putting him with Tima and Tane will not work. He has to stay inside in the day time. Anyway – we will cross that bridge when we come to it.
Here is Wai a week ago – the day he arrived. Funny how what we thought was really awful last Monday raises no eyebrows today. We have become desensitised which is probably a good thing.
So I have new instructions for some areas but a Well Done over all. He will have pumpkin and prunes for breakfast for the rest of his life though – I don’t want him going through that again.
The rest of the day I worked in the gardens, tying up tomatoes, weeding, hoeing. I was worn out by the end of the day.
I hope you have a lovely day.
