Pig Christmas celebration
Long before Shepherd's Green existed there were pigs and Pig Christmas at Dragonwood Farm
A good day, in fact the best day of their year, is December 26, designated Pig Christmas ! These little ones have more favorite foods in front of them than they can eat. They start out grabbing it in competitive style, then realize the piles aren't going down very fast, so they get selective, maybe a cookie, no, maybe a banana, no I think pasta.... yes, pasta will be good .. with whipped cream!!!!
As they get full they walk by and look but decide to save some for later. If you look out at dawn the day after Pig Christmas, you will see some opportunistic little pigs getting a "leftovers" breakfast, the appetizer before their regular breakfast! Others take something to bed with them to save the walk..
The Christmas Fundraiser begins December 1st....don't be late for pigmas dinner!
Because of the size of the file this year (Nearly 500 pigs!) I am preparing a Flipbook to link all the photos and videos together in a reader friendly "book". If you have any trouble loading it, you can get them from the table below, as before
Yay !! It's Pig Christmas 2015 ! THank You all for making it a wonderful day
The absolute Very Best day of the year !! Jump right in and make some pig's special day ! We have two Lists to pick from. One is the Tennessee list and the other the Kentucky list. Both are Shepherd's Green Sanctuaries now. About 160 Missouri, Kentucky and Illinois pigs reside in KY. They are the younger pigs in the system.
300 reside in Tennessee and in our foster homes. About 160 of those in TN are geriatrics or special care pigs. The "system" we designed for our foster homes is they come back to the main TN sanctuary when their health appears less than normal or they reach 12 years old, whichever comes first. When we took in the Missouri pigs, we followed the same design. So the TN facility is bursting with senior citizens. Shuffleboard,anyone?
Choose one or a dozen pigs; pick them yourself or tell me to pick from seniors, farm pigs, handicapped or juvenile delinquents!
Each meal is $5 and a christmas ornament will go into their block of the list below (see Fiona's example.. she has 3 tokens already!!)
