New carry cage

Last week, I had to take the pigs to the vets with suspected mange mites. He gave them an injection and asked me to go back tomorrow.
I worried that the girls might never forgive me – I grabbed them from their beds, shoved them in a box, and walked them the 20 minutes to the vets. He then picked them up – badly – cooed over them ridiculously, and stabbed them with a needle.
I wanted to find an easier way of getting them there, something which might reduce the stress.
So I built them a mini-cage, with an opening door, so that they can just hop in (maybe with a cucumber bribe) and I can just shut the door and carry them off.
I love the floral roof! I hope they will too. Let’s just hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow. I’m not sure they’ll like the bus.
