The New Porker

This is the new piggie, Cookie.She looks a lot like J.P., our last piggie, and in fact she, like he, is another runt and came to us from the same Mennonite farmer (on a side note, one of our friends suggested we call this one "J.P. II", but I try not to use Christian names or those of candidates for canonization when I can help it).

She has already managed to escape her pen, which doesn't seem to be much of a problem right now since she follows the cows wherever they go.
Our heifer, Naomi, seems to be tolerating her ugly foster-child pretty well. Cookie, being still a baby, gets tired of following and flops down in the grass while Naomi grazes. Then Cookie, being still a baby, falls fast asleep. When she awakens she is in a total panic to find her "Mommy". Thank goodness the cows have bells on them...

  3. Hi, Tracy! Yes, we've had a good bit of rain this year. By this time last year, a real drought year, everything was getting pretty crisp.

    It's winter down under, isn't it?
