Why Hello?! Wow its been awhile hasn't it? Lots of new faces. Hi!!! *waves*
Well I can tell you all a lot has changed since I left a couple of years ago. Firstly I had a nervous break down in 2015, it resulted in finding out I was suffering from ptsd. Since then its been a rollercoaster of craziness, but now that things are level, I wanted to share my masters to you. My herd has changed a lot since I left so I decided that I must start a whole new thread.
So to start off with I currently am a slave to 10 piggies. 6 sows and 4 boars.
Alba, our oldest sow, her age is unknown but she's been with me almost 4 years now I believe.
Molly, She is doing much better now that she isn't a baby maker. We believe she's 3 this year.
Pumpkin, Molly's youngest daughter. She's two now and a total abby (you know what I mean....)
Princess Peach, Molly's eldest daughter who is also doing better now that she's not having babies. She's 2.5 years old.
(hee hee that's Dj Dave my better half)
Potato, she's an older sow, we don't know her age but she's been with us a year or so now. Yes, she's a teddy!!!!!! (my first)
Pickle, is also an older sow but it is unknown how old. She came to us with Potato. She's a naughty girl but so pretty (and she knows it).
Oreo, Oreo is an older male. He has never had a good time bonding according to his owner. He's currently being housed with Moehawk (just recently but so far so good).
Moehawk is Pumpkins litter brother and younger brother to Princess Peach. Also son to Molly.
Mr. Dinkles, he's about 1-2 yrs old and came with his brother Todd and Oreo from another home.
Finally we have Todd, brother to Mr. Dinkles and bonded boss man.

So glad you're feeling better now, I always find my piggies a great comfort and a calming affect. Now give me your address so I can start swimming. Here piggy pigs I have a carrot for you! Look forward to more stories of the piggy bunch!
Early August saw some much needed good news, a new boar for Moe. His name is Vanilla Bean or Mr. Bean for short. He's still recovering from a little fungal issues. 3 days after we rescued him I was asked by an acquaintance to take in her 2 skinny pig boars.
You can imagine the roller coaster I've been on the last two months but thankfully things have normalized a bit and school starts next week here so I'll have my days back to myself LOL.
Today we went out for a little treat, its been the perfect weather to take the Skinny pig boys out. We found a perfectly shady spot with lots of yums.
Mum, what keeps tickling my tummy? -Todd
OMG its the grass, kill it with your mouth Todd! -Mr. Dinkles
Like this? -Todd
Ya sure something like that -Mr. Dinkles
I love the smell of clover in the middle of the day. -Mr. Dinkles
Our newest addition to the skinny pig craziness. Cheech (darker) and Chong (lighter).
The two of them to my knowledge have never seen the outdoors (other than to get to 3 homes in 6 months oi).
I kinda like this outside idea as long as your near hooman. - Chong
I don't know... let me ponder this outsideness. - Cheech
How about a rest Cheech? - Chong
You know thats a great idea. -Cheech
Daisymay: Thank you luv. Its been a hard summer that's for sure.
With the cooler weather coming more and more each day I decided to take the girls out for a little forage time.

Pumpkin, Potato and our old lady Alba.
"Don't worry Potato I'll protect you from anything!" - Alba
"Huh? here is danger and not just food?" - Pumpkin
"Well none that I can see but don't worry I'll keep look out." - Alba
"I feel safer already with you on watch" - Potato
Everyone has been settling in nicely these days. One days seems to blend into another. Today I whipped out the old seeing machine and made the boys some new Halloween stuff. More is to come but for now they have some new things. I took a quick video (no sound) on my cell. They also just had a nice bath and coconut oil rub down so they aren't too happy with me.

Life has been really crazy here. I'm awaiting surgery as I have a gallstone impacted into the opening of the gallbladder and its making me really sick, but not sick enough to not get some CUTE holiday photos. I can only post a few so feel free to check them all out HERE
Todd (he wasn't a fan)
Oreo and Vanilla Bean
Happy Holidays everyone. <3
I saw the surgeon and our time frame is sometime between Jan and April. I'll get two week notice before I go in. So far the pain is manageable and the boyfriend is off work for the season so he's been helping me keep to a rigorous eat scheduled of micro meals.
But in other piggie news, the boyfriend and I are going to be making new cages soon so that all the piggie are in one location. This is kinda to prepare him for my surgery as he will be the main caretaker, thankfully he's as much of a piggie lover as I am, so I know they are in good hands. I'm going to be building wooden stacked cages like similar to what I had in 2013. I know now all the things I hated about it (like being three cages high, this time only 2 per), the way the front was and so on.
Then once that's done and the rabbits blow their winter coats its new cages for them as well, their the boyfriend's babies as I'm highly allergic to them when I touch them but I am happy to help him build a manor for them to live in. After all, its not their fault they are evil bundles of allergens to me.
