She´ll do a good job placing them, too.

You think? Me thinks most of these pigs have found a home.

I vote for the nickname "Reformed".

Yeah, I know you did, Pinta. But this is just a one time shot. Really. Honest.
Loren is getting busy on the C & C cages, and I HAVE all this extra gear, and the pigs really NEED someone...it all just seemed to make perfect sense.

Plus, I´ll get the joys of babies without the guilt of death.

No, E, they CANNOT all stay here. Well, maybe one or two of them.....

Five is a round number.

I already have 9 of my own! 5 is a round number??? In what language? Sweet and innocent my eye.
And Nuts, you keep out of this! I don´t need any encouraging from the peanut gallery...

14+11=25

Even nicer round number (Bats, check my math).

Your math is fine, Teresa.
And yes, he chuckled, 25 is a nice round number.
I think you were down that low last winter, before all hell broke loose.

She´ll never admit she was down that low! In fact, I don´t think she´ll ever remember... her brain is now clouded with "pigs in the front room... pigs in the front room..."

I noted today that the 36 PHS pigs are filling out quite nicely and are actually growing new hair on their poor, bony, bald bodies!

They get their 3rd Ivermectin treatment on Saturday, and we´re waiting to hear about their official status. I´m hoping they will be released soon, ideally next week, so we can get them to their new caretakers in Washington without too much delay.

Glad you´re keeping us posted on the little guys, Pigpal.
Those 36 pigs were in pretty sorry shape.
This is great news.

Beware, kleenmama, however much space you make will be full and you will need more. Then as you get more pigs, you will keep more pigs. And more pigs will come in . . . you´ll need more space, . . . a couple will be SO cute . . .

and you´ll have 50 before you know it.

So sad to see all these pigs. I glad they are starting to feel better.

Gracie-
KM is a reformed breeder. She had 50 pigs for quite a while. But I agree. Why not keep them all?

Smirk my a**!

I think my all-time high was 56 pigs. I´m getting all the C & C stuff this weekend, and working on the new cages.

I just hate to see any pigs suffer, it seems so sad. Sandi is also taking some of the pigs, I think I´m gonna wind up with about 15 of them. That way, if I can´t part with any of them, it will be a reasonable number.

You all realize, however, that a good number of the sows may be pregnant. So there are even MORE little ones to find homes for.

I thing I think I can handle is finding homes for the pigs. As long as I know they are in a better place, I´m fine with new forever homes for them. The ones I can´t bear to part with, I don´t. Makes it very easy!

See?

I have a feeling you won´t be looking for many homes...

SUCKER!!!!

You can always dump the baby sows on Pinta and the baby boars on Karen...
