Pig Physicals Complete

Miss Piggy and Auggie received their annual physical and a clean bill of health from Dr. Mozzachio, who was in checking on our twosome recently. Their annual physical consists of a Rabies vaccine, hoof trimming, teeth check, ear and eye cleaning, and general body assessment. Everything, for both pigs, is wnl (within normal limits), and diet and supplements are to continue as is. I am a huge fan of the pig sling. Makes treating the pigs much easier, which isRead more

An Emotional Week

We invited people back to the Museum this week. Campers arrived Monday, and Members arrived starting Tuesday (online ticketing only). Everything is very thoughtful, limited, and as safe as possible. It’s been almost 4 months without guests here, working quite a bit, and a whirlwind of emotions throughout the period. (I am sure everyone is having their own roller-coaster ride since March!) Safety is critical for the team. Safety and good welfare of the humans are the only way weRead more

Update from the Week.

I got some non-desk time this week. This meant, lots of clothes, bandanas and masks to sweat through. However it also meant some good times and sights to be had. I did a great virtual Summer Camp program with Steve, David, and the Farmyard Critters. I also did a bunch of weed-eating, and clearing unwanted plant growth from a few areas. While working at Bear Overlook, the bears treated me with a visit. I sooooooo wanted to be where MimiRead more

Last Week in June

I was so happy this morning to welcome back former volunteer and former temporary Animal Keeper Nicole. Nicole’s arrival and help brought smiles and cheers from the rest of the team this morning! The other thing I was sooooooo happy about this morning is Virginia’s improvement. Last week she tore part of the skin off her foot. Given the issues she has already walking it was a hard few days for her. We’ve had her locked in the house soRead more

Summer is Here

Again this week, not sure where the time has gone. Yes, it’s only Tuesday night, but my schedule has me off grounds starting around noon on Wednesday. Seems that putting out fires (figuratively) or being in meetings has limited my access to some good photos (as well as my sanity). Furthermore, the heat lowers my tolerance threshold. I go through several masks and bandanas daily, but do get to spend some quality time in the walk-in freezer. Here a fewRead more

Rain Rain Go Away

Not sure where the week went. Maybe it’s because I’ve been on so many meetings I cannot remember what’s been going on. Many people these days are meeting all the time on the computer. I’d have to say— what a drag. Thank goodness I get to be out in the field taking care of the animals and the people, and only part of the time on my computer. With the weather, all our yard work projects came to a halt,Read more
