I´m planning to drive them north to meet Kleenmama on Saturday, so they can start their new life in Washington state. One of the sows gave birth last weekend to two adorable cream and white babies (one American and one Abyssinian).
Now, I just have to find a van to hold them all. . . where there´s a will there´s a way!
- I GAVE, dammit!
Really, I thought I would hate the van, but truly, I could haul everything in it, it got great gas mileage, and it drove like a car. Even though I hated the look, it was the most efficient and practical vehicle I have owned.
I think minivans wear well on practical women. It is the guys who are ashamed to be caught dead in them.
There are some really, really cute ones heading up to you Kleenmama. Amazing difference from the day they first arrived. One newly beat up boar will need some special attention, but he should be fine with good care.
You can tell she´s been through this pig-packing routine before! She had it down to a science for this one!
Safe wishes on her trip up there today and may no one deliver on board!
LV, even that monster "cage" someone gave you when we were in Madison fit in your minivan! I would say for you, there really aren´t many other options!
Actually, my VW bug can haul the coroplast from a 2X5 C&C cage!
It fit from the front windshield to the back latch with no room to spare. And side-to-side, it went from the passenger door to the driver´s seat with a modest amount of bending and tilting. And she still had room to add 3 big pig houses, 5 shopping bags full of supplies, and a box with 3 guinea pigs.
Just remember, we´re talking about a woman who packed 30 cages into an RV, along with 3 other people and a dog here. Becky rocks!
I had the bright idea it would be safer to travel with it in side the bitty station wagon (Civic) and of course the only way that would work was if it sat on our heads.
Very uncomfortable -- poor visibility and one close call.
