Meet the Oinkers – Salt and Pepper
With their black and white spots, these two pigs make an adorable and inseparable pair.
With their chubby little white bodies, dotted with black patches, Salt and Pepper could just be the best named little piglets ever. And just like Salt and Pepper they are into just about everything they can, including your heart – their curiosity for the world around them is unbounded.
Perhaps it is for this reason they escaped their previous digs and took it upon themselves to circumnavigate their district. However, stopping them in their determined path were the local animal laws team, which quickly saw the quirky duo pound bound.
With kindness busting them out (legally, of course) it has been both snouts down here at Edgar’s Mission as they have made fast work of uprooting their new abode.
Devoid of the life of a commercial factory farmed pig, pigs so readily choose joy at every opportunity and so content with just being, we humans could do well to emulate their happy go lucky way of living. Described as natural antidepressants, playful and cheery pigs such as our little oinkers, are guaranteed to make you smile and chase your blues away.
And if you are ever looking for a way to take their blues away, here’s a hint – leave them off your plate, and they will oink their way right into your heart!
Little did we know that Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ short stay with us was to be anything but. An aged dairy cow at the end of her useful life, and having prolapsed after her last calving, a lifeline had been thrown to dear Lucy.
Separated from her family and friends by what terror, we shall never know – but clearly, the little grey kid goat surely did. She told such a tale as she raced across the pound yard towards the only familiar figure she could find.
Our first introduction to the wee little lamb with the sweetest of faces, the one who we would name Sarsaparilla, came by way of an appeal for help, along with a video of her stoically trying to keep up with her dear mumma.
Only moments into our care, two little orphan lambs named Micky and Mini, without words, began to tell us about themselves.
Struck by a vehicle which almost claimed his life, the young and injured pig was struck again.
