If someone could meet Briana somewhere in between SF and Wendover, and bring them further East and meet me, it would certainly help a great deal. Even getting them as far East as Salt Lake City cuts about 3 1/2 hours of driving time for me. (244 miles!) Every little bit helps both of us.
As I understand it, this will be on the 5th (and possibly the 6th) of July.
Thank you SO much Jin for taking so many of the pigs and Briana for volunteering to drive. I went in to evaluate the Mom and 5 babies at PHS yesterday. The babies are ADORABLE, little fluffballs, mostly roan/white Abby types, one Texel type coat (all females) and a gorgeous red male, who has longer hair. The lethal white is also a female Abby, she has just one upper incisor, no lower incisors and appears to be blind although the eyes are a normal size. I was surprised to see her eating pellets without too much difficulty, but she will undoubtedly have more problems as time goes on. They´re just little ´uns 8-9 oz each one.
Incidentally, there are now even more pigs that came in to PHS in the last couple of days, including a very handsome young male TSW Peruvian.
Many thanks again to Jin and Briana (and everyone else who is helping out).
The one incisor is overgrown and pointed, not chisel edged like normal incisors because there´s nothing for it to wear against. It´s not causing difficulties at the moment, but I can foresee it needing to be trimmed to prevent it growing down and injuring the lower jaw. The Humane Society vet offered to put her out to look at the molars but I don´t think that´s a good idea right now.
She is very sweet and easy to handle.
