do pigs like pumpkins?

Just a little.

Every year, at least since I’ve been going to the sanctuary, a truckload of pumpkins arrives after Halloween. A church donates the ones that don’t get sold during their pre-Halloween pumpkin sales, which is pretty cool. They make great decorations, and they’ll be used for the Thanksgiving With the Turkeys event, but they also make great treats for the pigs.

I love when we feed pumpkins to the pigs. They just love them. It is so much fun! Inevitably you’ll see someone with most of a pumpkin in his or her mouth, trotting away from the crowd to eat their prize in peace. Of course, also inevitably, someone follows them. But that’s okay, despite the complaints they send up, the pigs are pretty good about sharing.

And there are always plenty to go around.

For anyone who is wondering how things are going with the folks who were moving into my heating ducts last night, I haven’t heard them yet today. Either they have a much more active social life than I do, and won’t get in until late, or they decided that the community just wasn’t up to their standards.

In any case, the only nails I’ve heard clicking overhead are of Kylee, my upstairs neighbor’s arthritic and extremely sweet dog.

    Certainly looks like that they will eat anything, hehe. Not that it’s a bad thing.

    They definitely have preferences, and anything sweet is at the top of their list of favorites!
