Our original duo (named by my daughter)
Ethel-Seal The Poo Banana


Peppa Pea Pirate Soup


The 3/2/2016 rescues (freead piggies - went for two young sows came back with four mature sows, all in bad condition, two obviously pregnant, and a boar. (we have space, veg & friendly vet).
Blondie (Heavily pregnant, long hair cut by breeder due to mats, overgrown nails and so very, very dirty all over).


Miley (Surprisingly unharmed, hopefully not pregnant)


Morag (Had nails so very overgrown that her feet splayed out sideways, several bad wounds on head, all healing now. Hopefully not pregnant.)


Ned the boar (the baby-daddy)


Football (missing half an ear, cataracts and also had hair hacked to bits)


Football's Babies (10/2/2016)

Aw... so glad you could take them. They've finally got the love and care they deserve. All lovely. Very lovely!
I liked those names your daughter thought up - they're the sort of names only a young child can come up with.. but I like them!

Wow they are gorgeous. Ned, the ladies man! I'll keep my fingers crossed for not pregnant, even though those babies are incredibly cute. Lovely of you to rescue them, now they have a happy home to popcorn in :)

Thanks everyone. I may eventually write out the story of the night we acquired the rescues, but at the moment it still makes me rather angry.

The babies have now been named (by the two year old...): Bagel-Baby, Doughnut and Rhona The Baby Cow.

Having had a little fuss of Blondie earlier (she's a demanding sort...) I'm going to predict her babies will appear within the next 24hours, I can not only see a swarming mass of babies in her but can hear lots of teeth chattering away. My daughter was born with a couple of prenatal teeth (thus she 'teethed' in the womb) so I sympathise!

(As ever we are ready to go to the vet if anything odd happens).

Blimey, well done on getting them out of there. They are all adorable. Love the names, the first one did make me laugh. Hope the next birth goes ok.

I will reply properly later but I thought I'd update that Blondie is currently in labour.

Oh good luck Blondie, I've got everything crossed for you having an easy time. I love those names, it sounds like your daughter is at my favourite little girl age. Shame they have to grow up. :))

3 big beautiful babies were born roughly around 7 o clock all including mum are up on their feet and eating happily.

There were no fatalities and Blondie handled everything rather smoothly.

I'm so pleased that everything is ok, Blondie & Football are clearly quite mature piggies and I've been terribly worried.

Yes we definitely have our hands full haha, and yes we're planning on keeping everyone here I promise the older ladies a forever home and that is extended to their children. We're really lucky to have the space. We wanted a little herd and now we have a ready made one!

I think we are probably at full capacity now though, unless Morag and Miley do suddenly pop (hopefully they have been spared!)

Although my husband jokes that we've opened "Lady Squidgypig's Home for Geriatric Gestating Guineas" we're not a rescue and never will be but do greatly admire all you ladies and gents that do such a fantastic job rehabilitating piggies.
