Victoria, the Incredible!

For those of you who are new to our blog, Victoria the piglet was the runt of our sow's last litter. She had a very hard time during the first few weeks of her life, and spent the better part of two weeks living in my house. For more info, you can read about her struggles here: http://savingfaithgws.blogspot.com/2009/10/taking-bad-with-good.html and here: http://savingfaithgws.blogspot.com/2009/10/new-caption-this-photo.html

I received an email in my inbox about Victoria, and laughed so hard I cried. Her new family keeps us updated on how she's doing and sent me a hilarious email recently. I hope everyone enjoys it!

"Julie, I had to share the latest and greatest Victoria story.

Yesterday afternoon Victoria was running around the barn while I cleaned out the horse stall. The middle aisle of the barn has a cement floor which was slippery with the snow I tracked in. Victoria came running towards me, stopped short and slid across the floor. I warned her to slow down but instead she went out the front door of the barn and came running back in and did it again. This time she skidded even farther. She was so thrilled with herself, she came into the horse stall and twirled around. She must have repeated this 10 times!

She had me laughing so hard, I sat down on the floor with her and she actually climbed up into my lap and fell asleep! What a baby...and a heavy baby at that!

Then this morning, we were on our walk with the dogs and the driveway had been plowed but was still snow covered. We were going down the hill and she ran to catch up with the dogs and stop short again and slid. That smart little girl ran back up the hill and slid down again!

Victoria piglet, the incredible skiing pig!"



I always knew she was a superhero!

  4. What a great story to read, my first "blog read" of 2010!! Victoria is a miracle pig, for sure, and it's nice that her new family shares her adventures (and pictures!) with you, and you share them with us.

    I still say there are a couple of books in all this--a children's book or two, perhaps??

    Just sayin' ;o)

    Happy 2010, everyone!!

  7. Awesome. In general, animals, even wild ones, will only play when all of their other needs have been met (food, shelter, etc). It's great to know that Victoria has everything she needs and can enjoy life to the fullest!
