Meet Tinka, Tayla and Gypsey........

Yesterday after dashing about at first light feeding the animals, cleaning the henhouse and walking the dogs, we set off to Somerset to pick up our newest little recruits to the our farm.
~
When we got back many hours later the first job was to build the pig ark, (we bought it from the same place as the piggies, so were picking it up at the same time).
~
So with the light rapidly failing and the batteries on the torch, camera and power tools all dying too, we just managed to get them installed before bedtime. They had their first supper in their new home by torchlight and when that went out, they went to bed in their new house.
~
This morning they are exploring and meeting the other animals in daylight. And for all those you who have patiently waitied........
...meet - Tinka.....

...Tayla...
...and Gypsey. Our 12 week old Kune Kunes.

Posing nicely for the camera...

...and then assuming the pose all our other animals strike when they see me approaching, backs to the camera!
They are lovely friendly little pigs already, letting me stroke them and play with their ears this morning. The wanted to make friends with Rosy, but when they all ran towards her she was off like a shot!!

I'm sure there will be lots more photos for you all to see over the next few weeks, especially while they are so small and cute.

  5. Sue, they are totally gorgeous, I'd love to give them a cuddle !
    We had a cat called "Tinka" back when I lived at home :-)
    And it comforts me that you were also frustrated by the ebay invoice system - phew! We're not alone!
