We have a sick pig. We lost one a few weeks ago, and now we have another that it looks like we may lose too. This is a hard one for us as she is one of our breeders. This means we named her (Ms. Freckles) and expected her to be with us for a long time.
We haven't lost many animals, but the sheep and pigs? Losing one of them really gets to me. Inside I think things like, "I'm not sure I want to be a farmer." It makes my stomach hurt. She is cuddled up outside in her shelter and the other pigs are nestled around her -- as if they know she needs them.
If you can say a little prayer for Ms. Freckles, I'd appreciate it. We are still hoping a miracle can occur.
