Some pigs get through the hot days wallowing in mud and water.
But our Potbellied Pig Doo had another idea. He got naked.
In many weddings, there’s a tradition of the bride tossing the bouquet.
For the weddings we host at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon we added a new tradition – tossing the leftover food (except meats) to our Potbellied Pigs, Voo and Doo.
This makes the pigs very happy. They have come to love weddings on the Farm almost as much as the bride and groom. But being pigs, they sometimes enjoy themselves a bit too much.
We had a lot of fun with the kids from the Monmouth-Independence YMCA who came out to the Rogue Farms Hopyard last week.
They’ll be regular visitors this summer. We built raised garden beds for them and they got to work right away digging holes and filling them with the plants they brought with them.
And then they saw the pigs…
The sad-looking picture you’re about to see is our Potbellied sow Voo on the examination table at the Lois Bates Acheson Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Oregon State. Voo’s had some trouble with her back legs, so we took her in to find out what was going on. The official diagnosis is Bilateral Stifle Osteoarthritis. AKA, knee arthritis.
