Animal Farm Redux

I'm completely at a loss for words today after reading Manuela's terrible news.

While I gather myself together for a real post I'll leave you with a few more pictures from the farm. You can see that Piggy Sue is, indeed, a pot-bellied pig; at two months her tummy is already almost dusting the ground. Lastly a couple of shots of Blue. He's seldom out of his stall when I am there, but the other day his owner was walking him back and forth in the sunlight, letting him dry after a soap bath. He's an 8 year-old saddlebred full-blood pinto, for you horsey types. For everybody else, he's one gorgeous creature: blue eyes, black forelock and tail, white mane and crisp white markings.


  1. I love seeing your farmyard friends.

    About Manuela, I am without words.

  2. I too am so devastated for Manuela and Mr P. Speechless, angry...

    Your animal friends are just gorgeous, more pics!

  3. I really like the picture of the pig.

    I don't know why, but I really like it.

  4. Love that piglet.

    Just came back from Manuela's blog and there are no words to describe ... This life can be terribly cruel at times.


  5. I'm so very sorry for Manuela - it is so unfair.

    That little pig - way too cute! I just want to pick her up and squeeze her! And the horse is absolutely gorgeous! -Kym

  6. wow...heavy. I cried as I read Manuela's blog. tragic.

    i do love your piggie...sure do wish i could have one myself! hubby barely puts up with the guinea pigs we have, so i dont think he'd go for a real one!

  7. Thanks for taking the pic with your hand in it with Piggy Sue-- I was wondering before how big (small) she is. :) And I am still amazed by that beautiful horse!

    Manuela's news hit me like a ton of bricks.

  8. Thanks, Donna... and in spite of everything... the little piggy just made my day.

  9. I was so sorry to hear of Manuela's sad and painful news. Life sometimes, is just not fair.

    That little piggy is just soooo sweet and the pinto is beautiful...thanks for posting those pics!
