    What a cute pig! Don't worry, her loving heart and personality makes up for her smaller size. :)

    Re: Two possible lethal white borns today

    Because Darla hardly ever came out, and was such a scared girl about everything...I made the decision to put Darla into my herd, as another girl in my herd (Pixie), was just terrified of everything, and once she was in with my herd she relaxed and became a more out-going guinea.

    So to help Darla, just relax...and actually live life, she has been separated from Ron and Delta and has joined my herd, which including Darla consists of 7 girls and a de-sexed boy.


    I will do a longer post (more about Delta!)tomorrow, but here are some pictures of Darla with her new friends.


    Already she has become more confident and is actually coming out while we're there, stays out while we move around and talk...just knowing that she will have more of an life with my herd, makes me feel like I did the right thing for Darla.









    Delta will be 15 weeks old tomorrow - just one more week until she reaches 4 months old!

    In almost 3 weeks, little Delta has gained 65 grams, she is now up to 503 grams!

    Today, it's exactly a year since Precious came into my life. I can not believe it's been a year. I currently can't help but shed a few tears..as while I'm typing this..little Delta is sitting on my lap trying to figure out if my jumper is edible.

    Even though she is no longer here in the flesh, I still love her so much. Precious was a very amazing girl, she taught me so much.
    From the info we got, Precious would of been around 7 months old when we got her..she was around 650 grams when we first got her..so Delta at nearly 4 months old and 503 grams seems to be doing well!

    One of the first pictures I took of Precious -

    I'm so glad Delta is doing so well! Precious would be proud of you for honoring her memory by taking such good care of all of your personal and rescue piggies.

    I just read the whole story and I want to say how happy and proud of you I am for being such a loving and wonderful guinea mother. You are the kind of person that gives me hope...not trying to be corny but I mean it. :)

    Re: Two possible lethal white borns today

    Our beautiful little LW bub Delta is 19 weeks old today!
    It just amazes me to think that in one week, she'll be 5 months old!
    She is up to 538 grams and gaining!

    She's got such a cheeky spirit, and is such a strong girl.
    With Ronny boy as her de-sexed big bro, she is doing so well, he is so great with her, he'll rumblestrut so she knows where he is and she'll walk to him and they'll cuddle up and sleep. (Ron has gained weight since he's been with her, he was 950 grams...now he's 1136, just more of him to snuggle up to!)







    And my favourite picture of her!

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwe! Love the pics! They are so cute together! Go Delta! I don't know if this is true or not but it seems to me lethals are more friendly and loving. Mouse, the other lethal we are following, is a heartthrob sweetie too.

    There's a public Instagram account called "Hope For Mouse" that you can follow. It is about a lethal named Mouse. He is very adorable, but very labor intensive to care for. He also gets picked on by regular pigs, so he has to be kept on his own. Its nice that these two have one another, although it means double the care.

    It's really not double the care. (:

    When I had Precious (another lethal white), she lived in my herd of (at the time) 6 guineas, they all adored her.
    I know Fairy (the most famous LW I know!) lived with her two best friends, an Aussie LW called Soda who just adores her best friend, there were two male LWs who loved their "normal buddies!".
    In fact, most LWs I know have always tended to live with "normal" guineas and the "normal" guineas are just so great for them, they are their eyes and ears, and always look out for them, they cuddle up to them so they're not alone and they're just always their so life isn't so lonely and so they have somebody to lean on.

    A little update on Darla. (:

    Darla is doing so well in the herd! She often popcorns, and now never worries about being seen, she's chilled out and gained so much confidence!

    Sadly though, when she got spayed at the vets, they found some lumps near her leg, so soon she'll be back at the vets to have the lumps looked at and if possible treated, fingers crossed it's nothing cancerous, they do know it's not an abscess.

    Also, after being spayed, my girl Trixie is alot less aggressive towards me, she'll now let us pat her with-out teeth-chattering and/or rumblestrutting, infact now she loves to be patted on her head!

    I just read this whole story. All of your pigs, and especially your LWs are so lucky to have you taking care of them. They just look so happy! You can especially see it in those pictures of Delta and Ron.

    My fingers are crossed that Darla doesn't have anything serious.
