When I am doing chores Jude comes out of his house and follows us about the farm. He is the sweetest little pig and is my constant companion. He and the dogs.
At the end of his adventure he comes with me to the house – scampering up the steps – he waits on the porch while I collect his warm vegetable meal then off to the barn for his own feed. He is learning his first ( and most important) pig command – “go to bed”.
Meaning – go to the barn.
Today I will transport Molly to the other side. Yesterday with John’s help we carted one of the metal hog houses and set it up on the sheltered sunny Southern side of one of the bins over there – Manu will camp in there for a few weeks while Molly sets up housekeeping in the barn.
The farm is so much quieter with Molly and Poppy separated. Much nicer.
I hope you American readers had a lovely thanksgiving yesterday. We all gathered at John’s mothers house and had a wonderful meal then back to work for me. There is much to be thankful for.
I am hoping that today we get a delivery of three corn stalk round bales. I have not used these as bedding before so it will be interesting. As long as my little tractor can lift them!
I am getting behind on my Poopy Scooping – so I will continue with that today after Molly’s shift. It is heavy work keeping the barn clean – those ducks don’t help!
Have a lovely day.
