When Spot arrived she had just finished the gruelling processes of nursing a voracious litter and was a bit saggy. Her previous carer said that at this point it would be impossible to feed her too much. Now animals we are used to, like hens, can feed ad lib and just eat what they need but it seems pigs will eat all that is given to them and their weight is in our hands – which seems a responsibility.
Spot now looks fine and I think the fact that she can emerge from the wood at a gallop shows she is not overweight
In fact she moves so fast that her ears bounce up and down meaning she can briefly see where she is going
Bert doesn’t do fast
at the moment he mainly does sullen – standing a couple of yards from the fence through which he used to do a Pyramus and Thisbe and wondering why it now causes him pain.
Elsewhere October is mainly red
