On Wednesday I finally managed to get down to the yard to see how the new piglets are getting on. It always amazes me how quickly they grow and after ten days, they are now extremely playful and full of mischief! They are already showing all the signs of being troublemakers especially as they have worked out how to get through the gate and access the yard. Consequently, we are struggling to get Bo to go any where near the yard area as although he is over his fear of Pokey and Chewey (who are both enormous), it seems tiny little piglets are terrifying! The piglets are literally the size of one of his hooves - he needs to toughen up!
Our new addition, Bagel, is doing very well. My sister put a saddle on him this week for the first time since his arrival, and rode him up the road with Bo and I. He was the perfect gentleman and didn't put a hoof wrong, even though it was very windy. He really is a very gentle and loving horse and I am looking forward to spending more time with him.
Have a wonderful weekend.
