Piglets at Breakfast

Cora’s piglets are growing up so fast! From very early on she has encouraged them to come out of her hog hut to explore and forage. They have been quite happy to oblige and are actually more adventurous than their mother when it comes to tasting unfamiliar (to them) foods. This is very different to what’s going on with Olivia’s litter. They aren’t allowed out much at all – – when they try to roam Olivia gives a single short warning bark/grunt and they sprint back into their hut and stay there. For hours. Olivia is way more protective, perhaps because this is her first litter. It will be interesting to see if she chills out next time around.
