Gerties Gossip 10

Come Hither, Come Hither..... It's Miss Edith here ... Happy Easter everyone. I hope the Easter Bunny has left you all a nutritious poop egg..... or similar.

Well I'm in a tad of bother again today...... some pigs just have no sense of humour......

So at 6am I pretended to get a call on the rescue emergency line. Pulling many dramatic faces, getting everyone's attention by frantically pointing at the phone with my paws, while pretending to listen to a caller - Mmmm-ing and aahing a lot....jotting down notes... soon everyone was gathered round and when I put the phone down I told them all in a high pitched squeak - 50 babies were coming in - emergency - no where else to go...... snow coming..... you can imagine the scene...... A buzz of rescueness and shock as everyone discussed the emergency situation......

I then snuck back to bed sniggering.

Well I hadn't meant to sleep so long.... and when I woke at 10am....by the door bell ringing - only flippin Tesco delivering an emergency food supply......... We are talking kg's of carrots...... lettuce...... baby leaf by the bag..... you are getting the scene as the poor delivery driver was staggering to the door.........

I did panic a little....

Gertie Jnr was stood in middle of the piggery high vis jacket, hard hat, steel capped boots (which was a little over the top), clip board ..... barking orders, as everyone else was busily building temporary high rise C&C pens....ready to take 50 babies.......

I did gulp a little as I rushed to the centre of the room and shouted at the top of my voice "April Fools".......

I'm not kidding - You could have heard a poop drop ......

I only know this because I did drop a poop (I was nervous)........and I did hear it.....

They all looked a bit furious - not one of them embraced the fun of April fools day.........

So I'm back in the bad books again and keeping a very low profile.

RESCUE NEWS

I thought I would let you know who is in rescue and what is going on here...... so here we go...... Miss Edith's low down..

Bentley and Cornelius are still with us. Cornee no longer has an issue with a mysterious rattle and these two bonded boars continue to search for the right home. They are a great pair but do need the space of a C&C or 140cm cage as they are typical boars.

Douggie & It Girl Ginge ......... I know ... Gossip!!!!!! They have now been bonded.

Douggie finally got the all clear following his post neuter issues and him and Ginge only managed to land themselves a 5* home together. Douggie and Ginge will be leaving us this week ......... to move to their forever home.... more news of that on Tuesday.

Poor old Fievel is still with us and still having issues following his neuter. We feel so sorry for him as he hopefully has a home lined up once we can sort his issue out. However he does still have a lump in the nethers and until we know what it is and sort it, we are not able to consider him moving on. He will be visiting the vet again this week.

Godfrey, bless him, is such a true gent - and still waiting for the right boar to come along. As an older gent (around 3) we know it will be a case of the right match coming along. I thought I would share with you the conditions he was in before he came to us. His bread roll diet is long behind him and he has gained weight and is a really friendly trusting boar despite his previous existence. We know there is someone out there for Godfrey. He does still like a carrot.

Godfrey is currently living it up in our sponsored "Alexis Pen"
