Imagine my surprise when I read the Glog today, and I see no sign of the news of the hour. 13 new additions to Gould Academy’s Farm and Forest program.
The are a couple of piglets that are very multi-colored, a cool orange one, and one that looks like an Oriole…!!
At dinner I spoke with Tracey Wilkerson, the Director of the Farm and Forest program and asked her for some sounds bites for the Glog.
Tracey told me that the “time for all 13 piglets to be born, was a total duration of 3hrs. 7pm until 10pm” When asked if she had any help ? “Marguerite Wiser ’12 was great, washing the newborns, as soon as I handed them over”
“What about spectators..?” ”
“Yes there was a steady stream of Gould students and other youngsters”
“Yeah, lots of ooohs… and aaahs….. with the occasional eeeeewww…..! and uurrggghh…!”
” I heard there was a gymnastic piglet..?”
“Yup…landed right on his feet, pretty impressive, the crowd went wild….!! I heard someone shout STOMPED IT….!”
So the miracle of life is alive and kicking at Gould, and I hear there are some lambs on the way. I just hope it’s on a Weds…!
All the Best
