Jolie Piglets Sleeping
After her big movie Jolie and the piglets are taking it easy today, snoozing in the sun. Their hay filled shed in the atrium garden opens to the south with the hay shed to the north to block the wind.
You might notice that some of the piglets have short tails. Sometimes a piglet in the first week or so will mistake another piglet’s tail for a teat and suck it. The result is a short tail. I see this happen more in big litters. Jolie had a large number since she adopted so many piglets thus the shorter tails on a few.
The spotted piglet, white with black markings, is what we call a cow pig. That’s not an official name but something the kids came up with to describe that type of markings. You’ll notice there is also a red in this group. Neither one are Jolie’s natural born as she seems to only carry the white genes care of her Yorkshire ancestry.
