A very successful dry run

After reading a number of warnings about the potential difficulties of herding pigs, taking time to have a dry run at loading the trailer seemed a good idea. This could not have gone more smoothly and within a minute or two of arriving at the trailer the pigs were quite happy to go up the ramp.

In the end they happily went in and out of the trailer a few times with only minimal encouragement via the food bucket so there are no great concerns about loading them up on Sunday.

The pigs love the shiny new trailer!

And finally a quick reminder of their woodland home with a shot of them having their last evening meal with us. After all the time they’ve been here I don’t think they could have had a better life anywhere else – a longer life perhaps but not any better!

  1. Yes, thanks for the reminder and as it turned out the whole trip couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I was most impressed with the calm and professional way the offloading went at the other end – I can definitely recommend Simpsons in Cockfield
