We moved the piggies into a new enclosure today because they were quickly outgrowing their inside digs and temporary outdoor pen. Using the utility trailer as a temporary abode beats building a sturdier, temporary run for them that will only get a few weeks of use. We gave them plenty of shade, but they insist on sun bathing despite the warm temperatures today and probably have a mild sunburn after this afternoon. Once they're in the barn, we plan on helping them make a wallow so that they can cool off in some mud.
p.s. we figured out that Miz Pig is actually a he, so now they're dubbed Happig (aka, Happy Pig, aka, previously Miz Pig because she's the nicer of the two) and Grumpig (aka, Grump Pig, aka, previously Asshole Pig). I'm sure their names will continue to evolve as we learn their personalities, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it for now.
