Pig Christmas 2017 celebration
Pictures are here
Long before Shepherd's Green existed there were pigs and Pig Christmas at Dragonwood Farm
A good day, in fact the best day of their year, is December 26, designated Pig Christmas ! These little ones have more favorite foods in front of them than they can eat. They start out grabbing it in competitive style, then realize the piles aren't going down very fast, so they get selective, maybe a cookie, no, maybe a banana, no I think pasta.... yes, pasta will be good .. with whipped cream!!!!
The Pig Christmas Fundraiser begins December1st....
Don't be late for dinner!
It's Pig Christmas !
Jump right in and make some pig's special day !
Our herds are all putting up stockings in anticipation of their big day. You will fill those stockings, as if by magic, from places as distant as Washington State, New york, Texas and Hawaii.
If you plan to join us in person, we begin at noon on Dec 26th. (Weather permitting)
Many of you take special interest in the senior and handicapped pigs. They are dear to our hearts and we greatly appreciate your kindness to them. A crippled pig needs expensive medications (Adequan all year round runs about $300 per pig), a specially constructed shelter, heated beds, protection from excessive sunlight, a lot of vet attention. All add up to a big cost. Your gift provides much more than just a big meal .. it means deep soft bedding of bermuda hay all winter long, fresh fruits as part of the regular diet, dental checkups, and the kind of individual attention they need as they age and become less independent.
The New Pig List
We have grouped the pig list this year so you can pick from a group special to you. The HANDICAPPED pigs are highlighted withn their group. When you have selected your pig(s) you will receive a photo of those pigs and a short bio of each. Enter the names on the Paypal button or just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The elves will get the photos off to you!
Almost all of the pigs here have a current photo to share with you, their special Santa.
Each meal is $5 and a christmas ornament will go into their block when chosen (see Butters; he has 2 tokens already, I think he cheated)
The Paypal internet portal is easy to use, reliable, secure and you do not need an account to use it, just a credit card.
Shepherd's Green Pig Family
Special Gifts this year: More than anything this year we need help to keep pigs in their homes. All the pigs in need cannot come to the Green, but all can benefit from our combined help. Become a monthly sponsor to the Helping Hoof and we can do more to help pigs in need, all year round.
The Helping Hoof On the right, pick a monthly amount and use the down arrow to select Outreach. Or contact me to set it up with your credit card without going through Paypal.
This month we have 2 fences to assist with, and we are sharing in the buildout cost to keep a house-pig cozy as he transitions to an outdoor pig. And the usual, sometimes overwhelming, number of neuters and spays, currently 7 on the need list. Total cost of the habitats is $1550 and the spays and neuters approximately $2200. Choose any $ ammount on the Paypal Portal and write in fence or S/N.
Thank you for giving so much to so many..
