Our little piggies are still going strong! They are all doing quite well and are growing very fast. They have at least tripled in size and get bigger with each passing day!
They have graduated from eating every two hours to eating every three. Lucky me... We recently have offered their milk in bowls instead of using the "Nanny". They are quickly learning how to drink from them, but still prefer the bottles. Also, we have slowly introduced them to a piglet grain mash made with goat's milk and they have some interest in it. Although they seem to enjoy digging through it as opposed to eating it, but it will come in time.
Our dear friend Renee (who helped with Linus' rescue and recovery) has helped once again with our piglets! She found a lady with goat's milk and brought us nine frozen gallons of it. A special thanks to Lucy and her goats who helped our little ones survive!
I had time to take a short video clip of the piglets last night. The last few seconds of the clip are hilarious. Our littlest piglet, Alex, has a tendency to fall asleep after he eats. Watch what he does at the end! Enjoy!
Faith is doing well! We have been working with her under saddle about 3 times a week to help build up her muscles in her back and hindquarters. She has remained sound thus far - knock on wood!
Linus is also doing well. He is putting weight on nicely and is still as sweet as ever. We have plans of starting him under saddle within the next couple of weeks to evaluate him under saddle. I will have pictures online for everyone to see his progress!
Here's a question for our readers...
Let's just pretend for a second that Faith was going to a horse show and needed a "show name". What do you think would be fitting of her? I have one in mind, but look forward to hearing your creative names!
