Society needs to break the circle of animal neglect and abuse. It obviously can't be left for parents to teach their kids, as this is where they learn to neglect. I have strongly felt that animal care and maintenance should be included in school curriculums!

Way to go, ILG. I promise not to mess with ya!

Some people have the best intentions getting animals but just don't know what it takes to care for them, they just don't do the research. It is good that you had the guts to let her know the animals were not in good health. You were telling her something the donkeys could not. Good for you!

That is a good idea actually. This county is so rural and agriculturally based that probably a program through the county extension would really affect a large bit of the population.

I do seem to attract strays, I can't help it.

I'll have to think of an appropriate catchy name for our farm.
Strays R' Us Acres or something.

ILJ, You have a heart of gold, and I think you did just right.

Your place does seem to be a sort of underground railroad.

What is it with Miniature critters ending up at my house??
On September the 10th I was outside, minding my own business when my neighbor flagged me down and asked "did you get pigs?"
Stupid me, stupid stupid, says "No, but I always wanted one!"
So now I have two mini pigs dubbed Lois and Stewie.



So the former chicken coop is now a 'pig pen' literally.





.....Edited to fix pics!.....

Your pigs are at least cute. The one that adopted us is just a hog.

They are cute little guys.

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson

Isn't it funny how one remembers the day certain events that changed their lives? Candance remembers the day her pigs showed up and I remember the day we were picked by the hog that lives here now! Oct. 22nd was the fateful day that Angie landed in our yard. Our fenced yard. With the gates closed.

I don't know...I'd be tempted to "celebrate" that day a year later with a nice party ... maybe serve pulled pork...or a nice roast.

Yum! As long as it's not a mini roast!
