The little rescue potbelly, who cannot be in the sun as he recovers from massive burns to his back and head, hates sunny days when he is locked up in the barn with the common pigs. If you look carefully you can see his eyes. He is so cute when he looks at you – he lifts up his head and peers through the bottom of his bifocals. His neck held up at an awkward angle as his brain slowly arranges focus for his eyes.
Last night when I went out to put him to bed I found him in the vegetable garden. Just puttering about in there during his twilight freedom. He had followed a ribbon of grass along the track and down past the barn. He will still not cross the driveway to the house though. He will place one tiny foot on the track trying to follow my voice and whip it back to his body the moment he realises he is off the grass. There are many mysteries attached to this little fellow.
Today we will bring up the last of the dried salvaged grass hay from Daisy’s field, then set up the electric fence and put the pigs and the cows in there to finish cleaning up.
We are going to make the pigs a big pad of ruined hay to play in out there in their new back yard. More lemonade from this lemon.
The mouldy hay in the alfalfa field has been turned and turned and mostly pushed off the field. We will finish that today too with our forks. The pressure of rain coming in tonight will get that job finished.
I hope you have a lovely day.
