Trans-Species Friendships

 I find that so many of my posts have a common theme...
peaceful cohabitation of different species.

For example:
Horses and chickens....
the chickens have no fear of the horses and often walk about in between the equines legs.
The horses seem to just expect it.


Cats and chickens....
drinking out of the same bowl...


Dogs and pigs...
as if there is no difference between them!


Looks as though Maddie will be my chief pig-sitter.


Piggy love....


If only we, as humans, could be half as accepting of those 
who are very different from ourselves...
peaceful cohabitation.
Imagine!

Now, go hug a pig!

Adorable pictures. You have created a heaven on earth. I am enjoying imagining that will be what heaven is like. I think maybe you are an angel that is helping to show us the way to have heaven on earth.

The little piglets are so sweet! I would love to have some animals like yours, can't do it where I live. Your animals all look so happy and have lots of friends to take up their days.

What an awesome piggie mama you have in Maddie. You have a beautiful farm and home for many animals, it's no wonder they cohabitate so comfortably. That's the way a farm should be.

If only I could...next you will have me getting little piggies!!!

I love those pictures with Maddie and the piglets.

Alas...no piggies to hug here. Yesterday I saw llamas & sheep hangingtogether, and learned that llamas are used as guard animlas for sheep...but cats & chickens? Dogs & pigs? Awesome!

Hi Bev!
Just stopping in to show my sister your blog...she's LOVING IT just as much as I do. These photo's are precious..especially the ones of Ginger Maryanne and Maddie. I hope your day is a good one so far. OH...we felt that earthquake on Saturday night! More on that later. Since I don't have a pig to hug...I'll just hug my sister ;) Enjoy your critters.
Maura and sister Sue :)

Hi Bev, I’ve been in Williamsburg for a few days at a conference and MIA--just catching up. I LOVE this post and we often discuss the exact same thing--how they all just make it work and if only we could do that. I LOVE Maddie and she looks like the best little mama for Ginger and Mary Ann. So adorable! I can tell the girls are loving their new life at Bee Haven Acres :) Fills my heart!
Hugs, Amy

I love those wonderful relationships! When my ox was young, a stray rooster moved into the field and adopted my boy as his friend.
