Farewell, Pumpkin the Peacock

June 9, 2009

Pumpkin, our peacock, is no longer staying with us after nearly two years.  After he was nearly mauled by a large dog, narrowly escaping by flying up into a tree and then a few days later he was bold enough to roam the neighborhood looking for a mate and escorted back to our place by a policeman, we decided he needed a new and safer home.  After many phone calls I found someone who raises peacocks and was willing to give him a home with his other peacocks.  He picked up Pumpkin last week and said we can visit him anytime.  We miss this magnificent bird but we hope he’s happier and safer now.

May, 2010 update:  Pumpkin was very happy when we visited him late last summer at his new place, he had a mate and sired four adorable little peacocks.  We were hoping to visit him again this year, but when I called the new owner he sadly told me that Pumpkin didn’t make it through the harsh winter even though he was brought into the barn.  Needless to say, when I heard this news I was very sad.  The good news is that Pumpkin’s four offspring are well and happy.

Farewell, Pumpkin….

I know my blog is supposed to be about weaving but this peacock that showed up at our place is so beautiful that I wanted to share some more photos of him.  What a wonder!  There’s more to the story here.
