I know, Auntie Laura, I know you are cross with me for not writing for so long. To be honest there hasn’t been a whole lot to write about.
The weather has been dreadful. I’ve had the two girls with me, and with them squabbling and jumping the fence and annoying the farmer that’s been about the highlight of life around here.
However….. the past couple of weeks have been so busy.
I’ve had more babies! 11 to be exact. Just yesterday. They’re very handsome and so so cute… but then with me as their Mum and their Dad – Polonius – is a bit ‘hot’ too. So these guys are going to be very very handsome. I will send you a photo soon.
Pinky had 8 babies last week….. all black and white, except for one girl who is just the image of her Mum.
I suppose the biggest news of all around here is that Perky is now on the twitter machine. She is so bossy that one. And she never stops gloating about being on twitter. It’s easy for her to be tweeting. Her brood are nearly all grown up now. Sure she’s nothing to do all day! She wouldn’t have been so free and easy with her tweets when her lot were younger.
I heard the farmer say that 3 of her brood were a bit small so he’s moved them into a shed on their own. They’ve perked up a lot since the move.
The seven dwarfs (they’re Gloucester Oldspots like me) are still living with Perky… I am looking forward to them moving over to the wood to live with me. (Could you imagine the beautiful babies we could have?)
So, Auntie Laura, we now have 44 pigs living here on the farm. That’s keeping the farmer busy.
The babies are sleeping now, so I had a bit of time. I’ll take some photos later and send them on to you.
All my love.
