On Tuesday we fetched the new weaners for this year. Delilah, Deirdrie and Dorothy – (we each chose a name), and settled them into the pig run. So far they have just had the hardstanding and inside to play with – ample for three little piggies, and tomorrow they will get the whole run. Which is lush and green from having a whole year to rest.
It wont be lush and green for long… and they will enjoy every minute.
Previous pigs have liked the set up – room to run, mud to wallow – lots of rooting ground and vegetation, hard ground to retreat to when the going is soggy, a sunny wall to sleep against on nice days, and a shady snuggly inside den.
It works well for us too, as we can check on them, feed and water them without having to go in apart from cleaning out times.
Hopefully these will be another three happy pigs.
