Personality: Their humans say: “They are bucket trained and come running when called, spend most of their days foraging in a field and get on well together. Cuddles is the lead pig, is very people friendly and will be the first to roll over for belly rubs. Bruce is the male and is very vocal and can sound intimidating to those who don't know pigs, he is more wary of people but if he sees them getting attention he is quick to join in. Ginger is the smallest of the three and also is very people friendly and if not being pushed by Cuddles also loves a belly rub. Ginger responds to her name separately to the others as we sometimes give her extra food and treats to make sure she gets plenty to eat. All three are in good condition, love a mud wallow and hosepipe shower and adore a good brushing. They eat sow & weaner nuts mixed with brewers mash/grains, and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. We have never tried them with other animals but they don't react to our farm dog running up and down their fencing, they are fenced by electric fencing which is on a pulse box designed for hens and goes up to knee height so we can easily step over but they cannot jump it. They share a feed trough and pig ark and if someone wants a set of pigs who are more than just to look at then these three are perfect as they loves scratches, brushes and treats from people which made them ideal for interacting with our care farm volunteers (for health and safety reason there is always a fence between volunteers and the pigs but me and others who work on the farm regularly enter their pen and interact with them safely).”
