Greta Belinda, our recently rescued Hampshire sow is settling In nicely. She is out of quarantine, and enjoying her own pen.
I took the above picture of her moments after she was allowed in her new enclosure. I can’t help but feel like she is smiling. She would stick her nose high in the air, smelling and then chugging a bit. She even has my husband giving her scratches when it’s feed time.
Our rescue pig, Greta Belinda, has become part of my morning routine. She is still in isolation due to having lice. We definitely don’t want to spread to the rest of the pigs. She saw the Vet Thursday and he gave her her vaccinations and dewormed her, as well as gave her a heavier duty lice treatment. He says she is as we suspected, about 150# under weight. So with better nutrition she should not only gain the weight, but her skin should clear up as well.
Every morning I take her two oranges when I wake her up. She sleeps so hard it amazes me! I usually have to poke her snout and say her name a few times until I see her soulful eyes open.
So we still have a rescue pig, named Greta Belinda 🐖😍😘🐷
