New Pig on the Block

A big Jointers welcome to Betty Berkshire who took up residence with Maud and Martha Middlewhite this afternoon. After an uneventful journey from Salisbury she is getting her breath back in the orchard. After having had a drink of water and a meal of pig nuts and acorns she is quickly settling in.
She put the little pigs firmly in their place (and yes pigs can fly!) and then hoovered up every trace of food they had left from their breakfasts.
She seems a lovely pig, well used to being handled and nice and friendly, quite a contrast to the Middlewhites who don't seem to have had much human contact since they were born and have taken all week to get used to us and still hate to be touched.
We're looking forward to a fun and profitable time ahead, hopefully her first babies will be born early February (little Valentine piggies perhaps).

Have lovely weekend.

  2. Dear Sue
    I love your pigs names!! It's all so exciting for you isn't it? I think they will be very well loved and well tended pigs, indeed!
    And as for the Best Dressed Man - so funny! The shorts have that special way of flaring out at the bottom - so fetching! I bet he's delighted (?) to have won his award.....!
    Happy weekend
