Florence was rescued, along with Greta (previously named Lucky and Chip), from being euthanized by a city farm who had to close down due to the Coronavirus situation and had been unable to find another home for them.
We had to act quickly as we only found out two days before the vet was due to put them to sleep.
The first thing they did when arriving at the wood was to have a good roll in mud. They had a bit of a challenge from the other pigs and kept a low profile for a while. But now they're fearless of all the pigs and their only focus is food and they'll push any pig out of the way to get at it.
We asked team members to choose names and Florence was selected for the largest of the two middle whites (both around 5 years old). As we thought this symbolised the NHS and the care they have given to others during the pandemic.
Both Florence and Greta are becoming real characters, they are always together, even though they fall out at times. They love having attention and belly rubs and generally lazing around all day.
