The Piglets Are Weaned

The Guinea Hog piglets have been weaned for several days now.  It was easier than I expected.  They hardly made any fuss at all.  Their mom Cerridwen was restless for a few days, but now she seems pretty happy to be relieved of the burden of feeding all those babies.  She's already gaining back the weight she lost, and will be ready to go back in with her boyfriend Magick pretty soon.

Meanwhile, the piglets are so fat and happy!  I've been taking a few extra minutes each day to start petting and socializing them.  It doesn't take long for them to become tame, that's for sure.

This is how pigs should get to live:  surrounded by their friends, outside in the sunshine and green grass.  Not locked up in a crate in a horrid factory farm!

Still crazy cute, even though I can't help seeing them also as really tasty bacon and pork chops. LOL
