A tour of the shed dwellers, part 2 (Paul)

Hi all,

As promised here is the remainder of the shed tour!

First up we have the remainder of last years weanling's.  The 6 boys have all either gone to new homes or are waiting to go.  Of the girls, Celestial has left us to join Phil and Jan and the remainder are due to join our core herd.  In the top right hand corner you might just be able to see Minimus's bum.  Although he is now 2 years and 2 months old he weighs around 28kg and is presumably destined to stay a midget, a very popular midget though as 'his public' at the shows love him!  He is happy living with the 'littlies' although they are all bigger than him now!

Finally, we have the main herd of girls and cria.  We are holding back 3 of this years boys, the other 6 are already spoken for before they have been weaned!  The boys are off in 3 pairs to fantastic new homes which we will update you on later in the year.  Just in case the new owners are looking in (I know you do!) I have put the names of a few of them on the picture.  Phil and Jan, Palm-Olive and Clive are to the right and Palm-Olive went ballistic at Gianmarco's Masterpiece tonight at spit-off, excellent!  Enjoy!
