Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

WHAT happend to Nicholas' tail?

Ohiofarmgirl said...

it was a big ordeal, OneVG, a big ordeal for sure. it turned out that Nicholas flips his tail around - a lot. and one morning he flipped it into the hinge side of the door. and the door was closed. with this tail in it. but his tail was not shut across...but rather up-and-down. so he had this terrible split-like wound up to the top of his tail. it was horrific. it was one of the few times i nearly passed out. of course these things never happen on a Tuesday but rather very early on a sunday morning..... so the emergency vet performed a tail-saving surgery. frankly i couldnt believe that it worked. but it did! and wow did they ever stick me with a bill.... it was about $800. worth every penny, i assure you, but when they gave me the total i went weak in the knees for a second time that day.

what followed was a long and arduous recovery which included me hovering over Nicholas almost every second and the "Therapy of 1000 Kisses." it worked and his tail remains. and now we are very careful about how we close the door.

can you believe that?

Our dogs and pigs are alright with each.....but there is always a fence in between them, so not sure how friendly they would be towards each other if the fence was not there! Looking forward to reading about your new pigs.
