Graham stands about 4 or 5cm taller to the top of his head than Simon. Posture accounts for some of it but G's forelegs are also a good centimetre longer. Initial readings indicate Graham is about 13 inches long nose to tail, probably more when stretched. Simon is about 11 inches, maybe a touch less. That seems right. G can get his head clear over the grids when he's on his back legs, Simon can only get his nose over.
So there we have it. Simon would look like a reasonably big pig next to anyone else!
In this picture we have bum lump A (later identified as Simon), bum lump B which is Graham and C indicates the regulation boarly gap between the two.
My old chronicle told me that it was such a fleece tent in winter time that originally encouraged Stephen and Alan to sleep together. So I did the same again. For the first 10 days or so it was very much one in, one out but there's been definite progress over the past two nights.
That side of the cage is next to a heater so it'll be nice and cosy under there. It must have something going for it because the current lean of the bum lumps seems to indicate some non-touching synchronised cashewing. Which is quite obviously not snuggling because boars don't so that. *whispers* Yet.
Their friendship is moving along nicely. The rumbling has a nice companionable tone and Simon tucks his head right under Graham's chin and moves back and forth. In other words gives him chinnies. That's very nearly as good as ear grooms to Graham.
Oh and you know you're a crazy pig lady when: your orange pig gets so relaxed during laptime that he tends to fart. Which delights you because knowing what works for him might be handy if he ever has bloat. *rolls eyes*
