thinking about coming outYesterday’s post finished with the piggies thinking about coming out of the trailer – lured by the promise of fresh grass. Curiosity and a bit of encouragement got them out

And joy of joy they also seem to like thistles. I am so hoping that they gobble up all the thistles unlike the Oxford Sandy and Black pigs who studiously avoided eating any of them!
