NEWS - August 2010
Earlier in the year we were asked to take in 7 pigs and 7 sheep from a Sanctuary on the Isle of Skye that unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, had to close. We agreed and the new animals travelled down to us in state of the art transport, were in no way stressed or distressed when they arrived and almost immediately made themselves at home.
The pigs are a cross between Gloucester Old Spot and Wild Boar. Their names are Mrs, Milovaig, Glenelg, Dunvegan, Skinidin, Flodigarry and Greshnorish – some tongue twisters in there for us Sassenachs! They have their own paddock and within minutes of arrival the females were busy making beds out of the hay whilst the males just chilled out and watched. Obviously they do things differently in Scotland.
The sheep, two of whom are a breed called Texel and the others Scottish Blackface, are called Lamu, Lamb Fats, Cloud, Piku, Aramea, Arabella and Rainbow. Despite the accent they have settled very well with ET and his gang in one of the larger fields.
