Happy birthday, Curly!

Keeping young Master Curly until his first birthday wasn’t exactly how I planned things, but Fate intervened and Curly has endured. This is a miracle in itself, as I wasn’t expecting Scrumpy to farrow when she did – but neither was she, as I discovered her in the ark with all but one piglet, a pink boar, which was screaming for his mummy outside in the cold and wet… I picked him up, put him in with his siblings, whereupon he found a teat and has never looked back.
