Barky's gone home

Barky went home a few days ago and Berry made a terrible fuss about it. Emma fed us in separate stalls so I couldn't really see what was going on, but one minute I was chomping away quietly and the next Berry had jumped the partition and was trying to get into the trailer with Barky! Emma said a word I had never heard before and her Dad said it several more times. (Her Mum said that was quite enough of that - so I don't think we'll hear it again!)

After all the teasing that I've had to endure about being in "Luv" it seems that Berry had fallen for Barky after all.

Emma says she's not so sure about that, she thinks it had more to do with the fact that she was shaking the food bucket noisily inside the trailer.

I told Berry we would get more food each now that Barky has gone, but I was wrong, Emma's just not putting so much down!

I miss him a bit, he was a great hot water bottle at night. Emma says he might come back and visit again another day. I hope so.

Film Star

I always knew I was going to be a super star and I was right. I have the starring role in the film of the year "A Pig's Life". I expect I'll get nominated for an Oscar! Acorn says to tell you she was in it too (though to be honest she was only an extra!).

I must go now and start composing my acceptance speach

Four noisy little scraps

My ears are ringing with never ending squeals. I don't know how their lungs have the capacity to make such a noise. They're worse than Berry at feeding time - and that's saying something!

My Mum said boars were only good for one thing and that was producing piglets, but I didn't know it happened this quickly! Barky only came a five weeks ago and the piglets have come already!

We went to bed last night and all was quiet, (except for Barky snoring) and we were woken this morning by a total raucous from four noisy little scraps. I can't hear myself think.

They seem friendly enough, nattering away to us happily, but they seem unable not to screech everything at the top of their voices. They also eat our food - I thought piglets were supposed to drink milk!

I'm very confused.
