Thanks for always having my back, buddy ๐Ÿ˜˜ * * Dottie and Sookie have a special kind of friendship ๐Ÿ’•. Dogs are natural predators of pigs, so itโ€™s a work in progress ๐Ÿ˜‰ * Sookie ๐Ÿถ shows her playful affection in ways that a tiny pig doesnโ€™t always appreciate...like being swatted by huge paws (because pig squeals sound exactly like puppy squeaky toys) ๐Ÿคญ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ณ * Luckily, Dottie isnโ€™t fazed by much. She carries on, happily grunting and making her way around the farm, with a furry chaperone by her side. Dottie is learning to trust (that the big white beast will NOT chomp on her piggy ears ๐Ÿ˜‘) and Sookie is learning about personal boundaries. Sometimes I catch myself wanting to step in and correct behaviors immediately, but realize most times, they work things out without me micromanaging them. * I #โค๏ธmyfarm because there are so many lessons I learn from our farm critters. What have your pets/farm friends taught you? Sharing for @camoandfeathers @the_teenage_homesteader and @the_red_barn_farm .

โ€œI am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.โ€ โ€”๐Ÿ“–Winston Churchill * * Happy Hump Day, from my #spiritanimal, Dottie ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿท๐Ÿ’— The decision to get another pig was easy for us. We knew that Pee Wee ๐Ÿ– needed a friend. Although heโ€™s got companionship with the goats ๐Ÿ and his bestie, Camila (the Araucana pullet), pigs do โ€œpiggy thingsโ€ that other animals just donโ€™t understand (and can be totally disgusted by ๐Ÿ˜). Rooting, wallowing, zooming around the barnyard at random times ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฃ * * As much as I loved having a #housepig, both Pee Wee and Dottie love exploring the great outdoors much more than inside my ๐Ÿก , and their health and emotional well-being is benefitted from their daily experiences ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฒ. We strive to give all of our animals the best life possible, and when I see Dottie lounging in the sunshine โ˜€๏ธ or Pee Wee happily discovering tasty acorns, it makes all the work on the farm worth it โ˜บ๏ธ * * Sharing today for this weekโ€™s #countrysidepigs @iamcountryside!

Donโ€™t mess with a pregnant lady during meal time ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒพ (Swipe โฌ…๏ธโฌ…๏ธ for more pics and video) * Weโ€™re days away from the arrival of Hopeโ€™s kids (10/3) and the anticipation is killing me ๐Ÿ˜ฌAlthough October wasnโ€™t the ideal kidding date for us, Philippe managed to get it done one last time for 2018. In the last week, Hopeโ€™s barrel has expanded significantly and sheโ€™s bagging up nicely ๐Ÿ‘ So what are some signs of imminent goat labor? 1. A full, โ€œtightโ€ udder 2. Soft ligaments near tail base that eventually โ€œdisappear!โ€ 3. Mucus plug discharge and swollen โ€œlady partsโ€ (vulva) 4. Nesting behaviors, isolating from herd 5. More/less vocalization than normal 6. Sunken hip bones & tail base 7. Lying down, getting up; irritability and discomfort from contractions * Each goat is different and each pregnancy/freshening/kidding is unique, so Iโ€™m keeping a closer eye on Hope since she wonโ€™t let me inspect her as Mari and Maggie did. With fall temps ๐Ÿ‚ , itโ€™s been A LOT cooler at night. Think weโ€™ll need baby goat sweaters?
