Ester’s Story: A Heartwarming Beginning

Ester’s story began in 2012 when she was adopted by Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter, a couple living in Ontario, Canada. What started as an innocent purchase of what they believed to be a micro-pig quickly turned into something magical. In fact, they even wrote a few books on their experience. But this one is my favorite. Ester the Wonder Pig

As Ester grew, it became apparent that she was no ordinary pig; she was an enormous and endearing addition to the family. Her rapid growth was a revelation to Steve and Derek, who initially believed they were adopting a miniature piglet.

Ester’s size was not the only thing that set her apart. Her larger-than-life personality and intelligence endeared her to everyone who met her.

She was playful, curious, and full of love. Ester quickly became the heart of the household and showcased the emotional depth and affection that pigs are capable of. Her joyful antics and charming character captured the hearts of people worldwide.

Becoming an Animal Welfare Advocate

As Ester’s story gained attention, Steve and Derek realized the potential to use her platform for a greater purpose. They decided to share Ester’s journey on social media and launched the “Ester the Wonder Pig” Facebook page.

The page quickly gained thousands of followers, and Ester became a symbol of animal welfare and advocacy. Her incredible story helped raise awareness about the intelligence, emotions, and sentience of pigs, challenging preconceived notions about these animals.

A Haven for Rescued Farm Animals

Ester’s fame allowed Steve and Derek to establish the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary in Ontario. This sanctuary provided a loving home for Ester and a growing family of rescued farm animals. Ester’s presence at the sanctuary furthered the cause of animal welfare, highlighting the need for kindness, compassion, and protection for all animals, no matter their size or species.
