Cute barely covers Ruby, the newest porcine resident! This 6-week-old piglet is a personable, sassy little lady whose fate wasn't so good. Ruby is a heritage breed of pig. Had she been born healthy, instead of a runt, she would have run free on pasture and grazed fresh grass. And at the young age of 6-mos-old, she would have been sent to the slaughterhouse. For Ruby, living on a humane farm still meant an untimely death. A visitor to the farm provided to take the sickly pig off the farm's hands. They agreed and Ruby was on the road to recovery!
