Pig Christmas 2016 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!
Yay !! It's Pig Christmas 2016 !
It is the absolute Very Best day of the year !! Jump right in and make some pig's special day ! This year we have one very BIG family ! As our foster pigs "age out", or show signs of health problems, they come home. Some just don't do well and come home just cause they want to!! (Welcome home Petey)
If you plan to join us in person, we begin at noon on Dec 26th. (Weather permitting)
Our holidays this year include many special needs pigs... pigs who came in to see our vets and were determined to be best served by staying. Many of you take a special interest in these handicapped pigs. They are dear to our hearts and we greatly appreciate your kindness to them. A crippled pig needs expensive medications (Adequan all year round runs about $300), a special floor, heated beds, protection from excessive sunlight, all add up to a big cost. Your Holiday donations support about 25% of these needs for the whole year. Your gift provides more than just a big meal ..
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 on the list below (see Petey ) he has 2 tokens already!!)
