Just a year or two ago when I started keeping GOS pigs again, I bought a 'Fearings Tatoo Kit and  being just a little mathematically challenged, I also bought what I thought was a full set of numbers to go with it. Well at least that's what I thought I'd done. BUT having moved up to the magic  mark of needing to tattoo more than 21  piglets, I now realise that I should have ordered another set of numbers.  
Everything had worked splendidly up until now but having reached the point of  21 piglets, I now need two 2's and two 3' etc to go beyond 22.
I was going to tattoo all of Dot's and Gladys's piglets this weekend but can't proceed until I get the extra numbers. I don't suppose that anyone has got a set of numbers they want to sell or lend to me?

What do you think of this? Ten figures, zero to nine work out at £25.00. I only need two through to eight and they want nearly four pounds a number. How stupid is that?
