She cuddles cows as well you know  ;D ::) 


You do realise you're going to have me sniffing in May when our pygmies are due.


Hey Karen, I did hear that if you lick a snout of a pig it talks  ;D ;D

There's nothing wrong with cuddling cows! My poor Jacky boy moo's like mad at me if e doesn't get his after dinner hug (oh god, it's going to be SO hard on me when he goes 'off'  :'() anyway, the Wagu's allegedly get massaged daily to improve their meat so there might be method in my madness  :innocent:

As for kissing piggies to make them talk, quite clearly nonsense! Everyone knows you tickle them behind the ears to activate speach capabilities  :-J Piglet kisses are the best, but one of my mama pigs has a bit of a cold and sneezed in my face yesterday....... not nice and definitely not for kissing lol!

Here it's me that's got the sneezes - so I guess I best refrain from kissing anything and stick to the huggs, which always go down well, sheep, goats, dogs, cats and sometimes the OH  :innocent:

And doesn't the smell linger for a long time? I could still smell the billy on Cloud two weeks after she had spent about 15 minutes with him.
