That looks great, Momo!

One suggestion(not that you asked). I would be tempted to cut that loft choroplast lower to match the ramp height and width. I had to do that with my girls because hopping over at the top of the ramp was too scary for them. I also drape a piece of fleece from inside the loft and then partially onto the ramp for a very easy transition.

Yeah, that was actually my other thought, that they have to go up and then kind of hop to the side.

Maybe a covered ramp will make him feel less exposed??? Poor B. His little brain cannot under stand how to process the ramp. My piggies were ramp-disabled as well I ended up putting up grids at 3 square heights to get my piggies to use the upper level...

My way of getting pigs up things was usually to take a veggie such as a carrot. Drag it up the ramp so it leaves a scent trail. Maybe do this twice. Leave carrot up top and let pig discover sent trail.

The alternative is hold carrot about 4 inches away from pigs mouth. Keep on moving it back as they go for it. Usually they don't realize they're going up a ramp. Veggies trump all.

I trained piggies to go up stairs by doing this. (Also female piggies on the upper steps worked to, but I think little Bernie is pretty acclimated to Ms. Emma.)

I love the "where do you think you're going McChicken" look Emma has on her face ; )

I also love how Mojo seems to be watching Bernie on the ramp! Too cute.

Here's what I mean about the transition between the ramp and the loft:

My girls are chickens. After Diamond died, I downsized and made a smaller loft and ramp. It didn't work. No one wanted to go up it. It was too narrow and steep. Your ramp looks perfect. Wide and gradual. Only thing is the hop over the top.

I know. :( I miss her SO much. There will never be another like her. :( Feeling very sad about her as of late.

Lynx's picture is beyond beautiful. I look at it every day and think of my Diamond girl.

I wasn't, guineapinny. I just "dealed with it". I think the inside of my left mouth was swollen, and it was probably gross as my mouth structure adjust to the new tooth coming out of no where...bits of food got caught in the nooks and crannies, argh! It's fully out though, what a relief.

Bugsmom, I didn't realize that! lol. I wonder what Mojo thinks of Berno's latest challenge?

Topaz, lynx did that sketch for you? It looks JUST like Diamond in your profile pic! Very beautiful:)

Momo, I wanted to ask: who is a more abusive roomate? Meimei or Emma? I think Meimei...she was constantly harassing Mojo, remember....rofl....while Emma mostly ignores B?

No, they don't. Lucky things!

I think I'm a speshul case though Sere.. my upper ones took 3 years, but my lower ones despite hurting once in a while, haven't moved much in 5 years. and I'm stubborn in wanting to keep them ;)

Yep, there's upper wisdom teeth too! Well I hope they were as I had two whopping sized teeth removed when I was about 20 (on two different dentist trips)

I only had 3 wisdom teeth (wonder what that means... Hehe) and all 3 came "in" sideways with the head against the side of my back molars and the roots extended into my jaw. Extremely painful and since the lower side of the head was lodged crooked UNDER the root of one of my back molars I HAD to be sedated. I was in tons of pain and ended up in the hospital 3 days later for severe painkiller reactions and severe dehydration. They said that if I waited 3-5 more hours I might have had perminant organ damage. I had 3 bags of iv fluids per hour and I was there for 4 hours. I dont think I peed so much in my life! haha Man was that WORSE than child birth!!!

Good luck to anyone going through that. My advice is those super salty buttery puffed corn things are GREAT to snack on during recovery because they melt in your mouth and can be mooshed agaist the roof of your mouth too. Stock up on jello, pudding, bottled drinks (because you WILL be too dizzy to pour yourself drinks) and ibprofen. The narcotics did NOTHING for the pain and made very ill. Puking when like that hurts unbelieveably bad!!! Make sure you have LOTS of movies because you really arnt going to feel good enough to do anything for 3-5 days...
