The pigs are getting to be ginormous! Came in from the city the other day and they had managed to knock over their feed bin. It was low on food and (as pigs are want to do) tried to simply muscle their way deeper in to it to get at the feed.
While they won’t get on a scale, I am estimating comparing them to our dog – who weighs about 100 lbs – that they are easily that large. They love to be scratched (which is something akin to petting a muddy football) and when they come up and push into your legs wanting attention, there is no doubt about their size. These critters are little tanks!
This video shows Bossy rooting around. The pile she is on is a HUGE pile of composted horse manure that was here when we bought the place. It is loaded with grubs and the three of them have been having a time turning the whole pile over with their snouts to get at them (of which I am most grateful!).
Bossy is up to her nose in Sh..! Go Bossy go!
