Pigs cooling off

We have had an unusual sunny and dry couple of weeks in May, and after a very wet and cold extended winter, it is wonderful to be able to get some things done outside. The fields have dried off and the grass finally is growing. We can prepare the hay fields for cutting hopefully in June/July and shearing is also planed for June. The sheep are getting hot under their fleeces and try and get into the shade as much as possible.

Our pigs also need cooling off, we prepared a wallow for them, so they can cool down by covering themselves with mud.

As you can see, they have taken advantage of the wallow
