Acorn's Bunnies!

Acorn has taken such good care of her little bunnies. They are growing strong and big. They are only a few weeks old. They are cozy and warm in their little nesting box. Four albinos, one brown and one spotted.

Running of the Pigs



Six pigs,200 lbs on the hoof each, running through the woods trying desperately to follow the sounds of our calls and the smell of their delicious pig mash to their new paddock near the road. It was several hundred yards of loud dead-leafed scrambling through thicket, down the gully, over the stream, through the cattails, across the field and back into the woods. It was quite an adventure for both humans and pigs. At one point they had all scattered and run off into different parts of the woods! Repeated bucket banging and calls of "WIGGERS!", their feeding time chant, finally brought them home. Those darn pigger wiggers!
