Getting ready

Willow worked on her house all day today.

Moving the hay just so.

Picking great mouthfuls and placing the hay in special spots that only she could determine was right.

She stopped just long enough to eat.

Then worked some more.

Then with a great heave, she lowered her magnificent self deep into the hay. And slept the peaceful sleep that hard work ensures.

    • Oh Laura~ such sad news. We lost all the piglets. Willow made some errors in judgement (I didn’t know animals could make mistakes. I thought it was all instinct) and as new farmers, we did too. I’ve been dreading to post about the loss because my feelings are still so raw. Thank you for asking. I’ll write an update now.
