Michael Clampffer of Mosefund took some photos of their pigs wallowing.
They'll be slaughtered soon. They look very relaxed and happy. He says they are eating about 6# of barley a day. I find it hard to believe they are 300# live, as Michael says. They look like tiny pigs in the photo.
When I see those rocks and much that they've shifted around, I'm in awe of their ability to manipulate their environment to make things more cozy.
Wet pigs shake water off themselves like a dog. When you get splashed in the face by a wet pig, you know you've got filth on your face, which makes it extra gross. So if you see pigs wallowing, you shouldn't get too close, or you'll get muck on you.
