Ahhh bless them…today they have made me smile so much….
I do not get to see any of our animals very much as i am to busy working…
But now we have closed the cafe to winter opening i have a bit more time to spend with them….
Today i cleaned up piggy area and reinforced the windows ready for the winter gales…
Pops and Mo loved it as i got to spend time with them…
Little mo was very excited at breakfast he could not stop talking, even with his mouth full

Mo followed me everywhere as he had not seen me for a long time, he even broke into the hen house when i was cleaning it out….Pops wanted to forage, mo just wanted to be tickled…even the frantic tail wagging did not spoil his fun even though it was in his face

Pops he is so cute, such a funny little boy, the two boys are chalk and cheese, totally different personalities ….MO is very sensitive, pops could not really careless ….Both adorable

Pops was so giddy when he broke into the henhouse he was so busy snouting about, everytime i spoke to him or said his name his tail wagged frantically…YES he knew i was talking to him…and his tail wagged accordingly….I told him i had a pressie for him in his own pad lol …..His tail wagged frantically when he went to his home and found his present

Video proof lol :0)
Number 1…Mo getting tickles and tickled by his brothers excited tail lol


No 2….Pops goes home and finds his treats


Then i spent time with our 3 piglets….The huffed and they puffed as i played with Pops and Mo…Sadly the area we have them all is only small and we have to keep the two groups separate …Which meansthe piglets doors are open late afternoon and through the night so they can go to the loo outside…Then they are shut away so that pops and Mo can come out to the yard and toilet….Bonding pigs is not easy as most pigs will fight ( now spare a thought for the millions of meat pigs (of which mine are) That are thrown together to head for slaughter)
The 3 Piggies
Poppy, Buddy and little dude….They are a respite, a saving grace, a gift from heaven….They NEVER cease to give me a lift….I ADORE my animals…Today i felt so loved by them each one has their own characters, their own charm that melts my heart…I was nibbled affectionately, i was used as a scratching post and hugged affectionately
I gave them a new toy of which they loved…Poppy is the boss ( well she is a girl lol ) so the boys never really got a look in…but they loved playing
Poppy, she is so clever….and so very pretty, she is growing into a beautiful young lady pig

We need more toys for our piggys….The gang LOVED the new treacle covered bouncy swinging ball, it was lovely to see them busy and having fun…I could do with setting one up for the pot bellies pops and mo to keep them a bit fitter
