Sprout is on the mend

I think Sprout might finally be feeling better. His weight has slowly been creeping back up and is now sitting at about 430g. Even Kobe put on a little bit. I let the two of them have the day on the grass in the puppy pen so they could fill their bellies to the brim.

I also think Miss Crumble might be pregnant. She gained the most out of all the pigs at the last weigh in, and her belly is definitely ballooning. I can't feel anything hard, or anything moving yet. But we'll keep an eye on her. We've only had her and Sheba 5 weeks now, so I'm curious to know whether these are Liam's bubs or some unknown pigs bubs. I'm leaning more towards the possibility that she was pregnant when we got her though. She's one of my more demanding personalities, standing here at the door way to the mansion cage, asking to be let out on the grass.

This is a little glimpse of the mess they make over a few days! I think they're all pretty keen to get outside.

As soon as the door was open, they all made a mad dash for the best grass...


  1. They are so cute. Glad your little sick ones are on the mend.

  2. I'm still amazed that you take the time to read this blog Joanne. And i'm glad he's getting better too. It's just a little too much having sick kids and sick pigs!

  3. Poor you! I can't wait tto see crumbles babies! :P
