Keeping warm - here's Honey, at a week old, snuggling up between his towel-wrapped hot waterbottles. When just a day-old, Honey brought to us after being found by a road. He is just one of many newly-born piglets that have come to us after falling from transporters when their mothers have given birth on the way to the slaughterhouse!
