Tallulah, Lola and Oinky in their sandpit

Tallulah, Lola and Oinky have created, after a major programme of digging and rooting, their very own sandpit. Our soil is very sandy and with all the nice dry weather they found the spot underneath the Hawthorn bush the perfect place to be to enjoy their frequent siestas. I’ve been surprised at how much sleep three growing pigs need but they are very rarely up when Neale or I go out to feed them in the mornings. They are just like teenagers who don’t want to get up and take about a minute to realise we’ve been rattling their bucket of food, at which point they sprint out of the pig arc in a big uncoordinated pile of pig! They retire to their sandpit for several siestas during the day and amusingly are quite late to bed, usually out and about snuffling in the dark when we go out to check on them last thing at night.
