Note to our Supporters: Temple Grandin to Happy Trails is a hero. She is a person who overcame a great deal of challenges and went on to become a well respected and productive member of society despite her having autism. She shows that anyone can over come challenges. It is meant as a sign of respect to name the pig after someone we admire, and we have done that also with the others.
Our pig, Temple Grandin, overcame great odds and survived. Often we give the animals names that will help them to achieve what goal we need to reach – a goal to walk, to run, to heal, to overcome, to survive.
Temple came from a neglect situation with three other farm pigs up for adoption. Temple, Practical, Fifer and Fiddler are all like family and we would prefer that each of them leaves with at least one of their friends. If they all went to a good home together, that would be even better. When Temple came to Happy Trails she had to have surgery to repair an umbilical hernia. She also required ear tag removal. She is a very sweet pig and gets along well with the others.
