It was very entertaining watching Jesse decide if the pig was safe to go near.. of course as soon as we saw the eartag, we were pretty sure he wasn't wild!
I gave him some water, which he enjoyed. Alot. We discovered he was a she.
We managed to usher her into the barn, and I raced to the farm shop to buy some pig food. Whilst I was deciding what I should buy, Jesse called me to tell me he had found out that the pig had been turned loose since the owner couldn't sell, or afford to keep. I have many words to describe this person.. freakin idiot is a starter. As I reached home... pig number two arrived up the drive....
They are ADORABLE.
They love the deep straw... that's an ear poking through! She's called Isabelle.
And this is Henrietta....
In Texas we collected stray/dumped cats and dogs who wondered onto our land... here in Oklahoma it's pigs! we've only been here three months! amazing eh.
I know absolutley nothing about pigs, so have been reading up on them.. I also emailed Judy of Pigs Peace Sanctuary who I blogged about last summer. I hope she can fill in the gaps!
