Abstract:

Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter had their lives turned upside down when they adopted their pig-daughter Esther, the so-called micro pig who turned out to be a full-sized commercial pig growing to a whopping 600 pounds, as they describe in their bestselling memoir Esther the Wonder Pig. The book ends with them moving to a new farm, and starting a new wonderful life where they will live on the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary to care for other animals and just live happily ever after. Or so they thought. People often think about giving it all up and just moving to a farm. In theory it sure does sound great. But as Derek and Steve quickly realised, the realities of being a farmer, especially when you have never lived on a farm let alone outside of the city, can be frantic, crazy and even insane. Not only are they adjusting to farm life and dutifully taking care of their pig-daughter Esther (who by the way lives in the master bedroom of their house), but before they knew it their sanctuary grew to as many as 42 animals, including: pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens, cows, roosters, a peacock, a duck, a horse, a donkey and a barn cat named Willma Ferrell.
