Burying her head in the straw to root for goodies that I hid amongst it. Pigs need stimulus and manipulative material and research has shown that in their natural environment they spend 75% of their daylight hours in activity – rooting, foraging and exploring. You can imagine why if they don’t have this, they’ll start to bite each other’s ears and tails. They’re bored and frustrated. Although we don’t let our pigs roam wild and free, the space they are in is filled with sawdust, straw and branches so they can do what is most natural. Happy pigs!
