Tinkerbell is Well!

Tinkerbell is doing much better and is growing big fast. She is up to about 40 lbs now. She still will only eat Gerbers baby rice and oatmeal warmed to the perfect temperature.

She is like having a 2 year old in the house now! Full time job!

A good friend of ours, that used to raise pigs told us that if your pigs tail is curled up tight she's healthy and happy.

Look at that cute nose!!!!

We love you Tinkerbell!

Saving Stinkerbell

A friends pig stopped making milk for her babies... She had 7 pigglets ,only 3 were left alive so we took them home in hope of saving them. 2 died the same day leaving only Tinkerbell/AKA Stinkerbell ( A Yorkshire breed ). We have been battling diarrhea for 2 weeks... She has lost weight in spite of her ferocious appetite. We have not slept for almost two weeks. Steve and I also had to turn the AC up to 85 to help keep her extra warm. It has been touch and go but we have seen some improvement with the addition of Goji berries and raw liver to her diet. Stinkerbell was white from anemia but is now pretty pink. Please keep her in your thoughts and send her healing love!

Taking a nap with stinker keeping her extra warm.

Our computer got a bad worm...that is why we haven't blogged for a while! Speaking of bad worms,the cabbage worms have destroyed most of our cabbage,collards, and kohlrabi!

The hand picking of worms and worm eggs didn't seem to work this year simply because of the numbers.
