It has been a few days since I wrote a blog so much has been happening that this will be a long one. I enjoyed the comments on the “ Bra-Bra “ nersary rhyme that I saw this at the Sanctuary and had to photograph it. This was actually a Christmas Carol “ Away in a Manger “, this goat was sleeping until it heard my camera.

Looking at Alice and feeling her tummy I think she is definitely pregnant. I was caught last time as I thought that she was too young to give birth and thought she was just getting the potbelly. I was quite surprised when I got a phone call to say she had 4 piglets and rushed to the farm to see them. That’s when I took a closer interest in her life.

As she is pregnant the staff have moved all the other pigs and piglets out of her enclosure. There are now two new ones in there now. The pinkish pig is a neutered boar and the black and white one is a sow. The sow is not too keen on Alice and makes her squeal so she may be changed.

This is what the house looked like and probably why in the earlier photo they were all sleeping on the wood shavings.

In the next photo is of the boar close up and the starting of the new house. I still have to fit the overhang which is going to be closed on two sides to give shelter for those that are not giving birth at the moment. It has taken longer than expected but I suppose I still look at a job as I would many years ago.

Smile of the day is this one. Every time I go to see these friends of mine I have to smile , thinking is this really a wild animal in Holland and why the small deer horns.
