On these lazy hot days of summer, the barn offers some cool shady spots for relaxing. But there is always a flurry of activity as the piglets get a little bigger and ‘jump the fence’ from the pen with their mothers to peruse the surroundings.
After ranging around a bit – they nestle in, back at the hut, for a nap.
The Mangalitsa-cross piglets are still too small to jump over the barrier. They have these very cool wild tiger stripes before the curly hair starts to grow.
Once the hair grows in they will look like they had a terrible 80’s perm that grew out with grey hair during COVID! But I digress…
Also jumping in and out of his enclosure is Vladimir – our ram.
Nothing to see here. Just walkin’.
He is literally knee deep in the grain grinder. Gluttony in action.
“I really shouldn’t, but…ok, one more bite.”
Then it’s back to the pen for a snooze.
