Fast Friends

I decided to put the goat kids and the piglet together in the barn pen, and in .037 seconds they were best friends. The pig is so happy to have someone to snuggle with! She tries to lay on them, which they're not crazy about, but then she settles down next to them and they're all happy.

Having them all together has made piggy a little friendlier too, since the goats run right up to us, she comes over too to see what all the fuss is about.

She wags her tail when David calls her Ziggy Piggy. We still haven't named her, but it may end up being Ziggy, or what I call her- Pig Pig (have you seen the book Pig Pig Grows Up?).

She's stuck to those goats like glue!

I'm not sure they'll be able to stay together for the long term, but I'll just see how it goes. Right now they're a happy family.

And last night when I went out to sit with them, she decided to climb up on my legs (all on her own) and take a little nap.

They're even color coordinated!!! That is the cutest darn thing! I'm so glad those babies are all friends. I'm sure it's good for them to have buddies. I like Ziggy Piggy. :)

Deb said... very cute!!! Don't you love seeing her so bonded to them!! She doesn't realize they aren't pigs!! I love seeing that she climbed on your legs to take a nap!!! They are all so darned cute! I can't wait to meet them all. Love, Momma

This, hands down, is one of the best blogging stories I've ever read! What a wonderful group of pictures, and the last one the best!

So Sweet... Makes me miss my Princess Porkchop being that little! I like Ziggy for her name.

We added a new pup to the family. All my others are well over 50 pounds but this one is smaller than the cats, and will stay fairly small. We are going through a bonding process too. Interesting (sometimes funny) to watch.
Since the new one has to be watched closely (for peeing and chewing, etc) the older ones, mainly cats, are all asking for more lap time and cuddle time.
I am hoping that in time all figure out how to get along smoothly.
I bet the goats and miss piggy stay friendly as they grow.
