Our final three

So we are officially down to our final three sows. It hasn't been quite as hard as I thought it would be rehoming the pedigree pigs as I know they've all gone to great homes where they will be treated with the respect they deserve.

These girls have been living it up, enjoying an over-abundance of food as I try to adjust to only needing to feed 3 pigs, not 30 plus!

Last baby left needing a new home

Little leighton is the last pig left to find a new home now. He is the surprise pet-satin we had born to Chilli x Montezuma. He looks like he'll have a shorter more rex-like coat, and still has his stunning rich colouring.

Laura, the satin-carrier sibling has already gone to her new home so we forgot to get her coat-update. She was looking quite fluffy though. And then Lilly's update is below. She wasn't cooperating for an 'in the sun' photo, so looks quite dull in the shade (the satin effect messes with my camera! It doesn't like photographing it! The iphone does a much better job!).

Lilly is looking quite fluffy though, and may end up looking like a coronet (a texel with the crest).

And this is how the last remaining pigs are living until the tower cages get picked up this weekend. After monday, and provided little Leighton finds his new home, we'll be down to just three pet girls - Lilly, Kobe and our old girl Custard (the big cream girl shown on the blog's top banner). She is only a few weeks away from her 7th birthday now!
