My Ossabaws arrived!!!

  1. We had a crazy day yesterday, but so amazing. I'm super happy to have the girls home now. I learned two things. A dog kennel will fit an Ossabaw, but will not hold it if they don't want to be held. And loose piggies in the same vehicle as you is not a good thing. Oh, and ossabaws are not suitable as lap animals. But it was an adventure for sure.

    Introducing Thelma:


    And here's Louise:


    Here's my transport vehicle (note - though Ossabaws will fit in a dog carrier, it will not "hold" them if they choose to get out...don't ask how I know! Thank goodness my husband wasn't there to see either.


    And the girls enjoying the new digs:


    And the world was so excited about the Ossabaw arrival, that a tribute was given just as the piggies were released into the pasture:


    Now I need to find a boar, that's proving to be more difficult than I thought it would be! Ah the joys of rare genetics. I have some good leads, and if anyone knows of Ossabaw keepers in Canada please let me know.

    Super excited to be owned by Ossabaws!
