BABE

I have so got to get me one of these(just kidding) but they are so sweet.

Mini pigs are big success on farm


A Devon fun farm is reaping the rewards of a nine-year breeding programme for miniature pigs.
The pigs, which are about a fifth of the size of ordinary pigs, have been a hit with visitors at Pennywell Farm.
TV celebrity Jonathan Ross bought two of the pint-sized porkers as pets at £150 each and there have even been offers from as far away as Australia.
The pocket pigs are a variant of the rare kune kune breed, which is native to New Zealand.
Chris Murray, co-owner of the farm near Buckfastleigh, began cross-breeding the pigs nine years ago and believes he has the perfect pet pig.
"These pigs are just at home indoors or outdoors."


I bet Beauty would love these.
Fiona is also in love with them and wants one!

I admit they look very cute - but can they be housetrained?!

Allegedly yes, the bunny that we got from the shelter is completely house trained as well which surprised me. Which obviously shows how little I know about animals!

If it weren't for the poop I might consider it but to guinea pigs and a rabbit are enough on the poop front.

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
