The first one has gone!

The first of Tia’s piglets has packed her bags and left home! It’s a bit complicated, but Itchy has gone to a wonderful home, that of Harold’s breeder and the sister of the owner of Harold’s papa, who is also the papa of Itchy and her sisters and brother – and Scrumpy’s piglets. Basically, we did a straight swap – one of her piglets (Harold) for one of mine. I don’t think want to know the rest, so I’ll save boring your socks off for another day and leave you to gasp in astonishment at these three photos, taken at different stages in Tia’s piglets’ lives:

Incidentally, Tia doesn’t seem to have noticed that one of her kids has vanished (either that or she’s so pleased she doesn’t dare let me know in case I bring her back) and seems quite happy with her remaining five. The only one of the piglets who looked a bit lonely was Scratchy who still looks a bit lost without his partner-in-crime. But I got two boxes of bananas from the lovely guys who supply me with my fruit and veg so they’re all stuffing themselves silly and loving it.
