Pigs, Dust and Spiders

The days seem to be turning into weeks which are turning into months far too quickly at the moment.

Frightening to think half of our school break is already behind us. We've enjoyed a two day town trip, some horse and cattle work, molasses runs (blah, blah, blah), more new calves, a passing dust-storm, some pig-butchering, the arrival of some new pigs, and of course the campdraft committee break-up party Saturday night featuring one of the pigs on a spit.

This little coot could find himself in just that position too if he doesn't stay out of my house-yard. His name is Spider. Your guess is as good as mine.

But he sure is cute when he's asleep.

And no, he's not a Berkshire purebred. He has a good dash of very inferior wild pig in him. A friend of Matthew's thought it a very funny joke to give him to the kids. Friend??
Because of course this little tyke is only about a week old and still needs lots of milk, weetbix, boiled barley and apparently a lot of cuddling.

Which is all very well while the kids are home, but I don't like his chances when they're back at school. Hopefully they'll have Sally sufficiently trained in his care by then.
