We have learned these pigs like to play games with us, and even appear to laugh at their own stunts. I always talk to them when I am entering their current pen and while I walk to their trough which is under part of their shed. When I head to the barn to begin with, I can see their lazy lumps "sleeping" in the shed. Well, as I appear near the trough, they feign pure surprise, bolt out of the shed in their typical short legged rocking-horse gate, barking with ears flapping as they run in a big circle. They frolic back to the trough looking at me, literally grinning. Goofs! The breeder informs us they are doing excellent if they are enjoying themselves so much.
We are also pleased to announce that all our pigs are now being fed local grains, which by this fall will be GMO-free. We are getting there! The pigs, especially the mulefoots, are thoroughly pleased with their new kibbles.
