Always fragile, Jude the rescue piglets health has taken another loop downwards but he is warm, drinking his cereal and milk, barking at Tima through her gate and harassing Ton.
He is so much more active in the barn – even with it so cold. He ignores the food and water placed on a heating by his house but leaps up from under his heat lamp every time I come near or I find him rooting in barn corners far from his bedroom.
He needs rest and quiet now. The cats are curled up close to his circle of heat light and Ton watched him all day, a stick in his mouth, on the alert in case the little piglet ran amuck amongst the hay bales.
As usual he moves way too fast for any decent photos.
Yesterday was a grey, sunless, sallow kind of day. A little wind, low cold thick cloud and no hope. The kind of day that you just work through. Head down.
My next guests arrive sometime today. I will feed Jude then finish in the Coop (two more beds to make and bread dough to turn out for it’s second rise, floors to finish) before starting chores.
I wish I had more time to visit you at your blogs. I keep thinking things will settle down soon. No such luck yet.
Have a good day.
