Everyday I am overcome with intrigue at my pigs. Pigs are by nature a creature of comfort. Feed them until they are satisfied and they will sleep in contentment. Give them the time and space to extinguish their energy and they have the friendly docile nature of your average pet.
One amazing new thing I have come to realize is their amazing ability to adapt and change their environment to suite their needs. Provide them with a cozy space with lush bedding and they will make themselves a nest, a pig hole. They will root and push the bedding around until it encircles them making a one to two foot wall of lush comfort all around them.
When going to release them one morning, we looked through the window and saw them happily cuddled up in the center of their house, surrounded by a mountain of bedding, sleeping nice and warm. I thought to myself that it looked more comfortable than my own bed, I might just join them!
They continue to baffle me everyday as they are learning and growing.
Share your pig experiences with me, I would love to hear what you pig lovers have to say about your snouted companions.
