Geez, I love all those pictures!

My vote is on the water. Or, as Lynx suggested, Super Glue and Drugs. ;o)

Dash it, my Superglue secret is out!

Stephen sort of passed on the mantle to Graham but they only knew each other for a few months and they never got to live together. They'd free-range around the place most nights. Graham followed him everywhere and just loved it when Stephen would wander into his cage or boss him around. He had the hugest crush on Stephen and took it quite hard when Stephen died.

Simon never met any of the other guys and his social skills were fairly terrible when he arrived. He'd been a solo pig and I think it had been a long time since he was handled regularly. He's been with Graham for about 5 months now. His being the very opposite of Stephen has been a real puzzle to Graham but they seem to understand each other now. Graham is just oh-so-patiently waiting for the day that Simon grooms his ears for him.

it takes a lot of time to read your pigs really well i think. The bond bitween you and pig or pigs has to be really strong as well i reckon.

Hi, sorry I haven't posted replies lately. Daftly busy. Anyway, thought I'd say that I took a copy of Simon solo in his little hat (hope that's ok). Then I edited it with some software I have (I'm a computer tech) to lighten it, etc etc. I was interested in the fact that Lynx wanted it for the calendar, but you didn't think it made the grade.

Anyway, I made a little side project of it. It's turned out ok, but it is always best to adjust a larger, original image than a smaller one. I was wondering if you'd mind sending the larger one to me, via email or some such.

Its no big thing. More professional interest on my part than anything else. That pic just makes me smile.

Oh, and Maddy I'll take some time to write descriptions of them, if you want? :)

Well things have been just hectic, manic even. Oh who are we kidding.

Plenty of not-snuggling too.

The boys spent a week back boarding at the rescue. Graham came back prickly and a bit feral. He refused point blank to be handled while he was away (he has a really mean kick) and, once home, he sat on my chest and lectured me for a good 5 mins before snuggling in and forgiving me. I guess he really doesn't like change much. Though he wasn't super stressed cos he certainly didn't lose any weight. Simon wasn't fazed by any of it. In fact Simon has grown an extra name. I've found myself calling him something else other than Simon for ages so I added it on. Due to his new, social disposition and his very-orange-ness, he's now Simon Sunshine. :)

I'm having a devil of a time pulling photos off my phone so these are all I have for now. The below pics were taken maybe 10 seconds apart. Mr Sunshine knows I can't resist that face and never misses an opportunity to try it out on me.

They look like they're doing what I'd like to be doing! (sleeping)

If it weren't for the chickens...

To my thinking, any person on earth capable of resisting Simon's face, is dead. He is definitely irresistible!

Glad to see my girls behaviour is pretty much what goes on with your two as well. Basically, napping, snoozing our time away and more just napping to gather up energy for snacking.

Great to see them again. Loved the action shot of Simon caught in a yawn.
