Just had chock and spike out for a handling session. One by one of corse. Spike needed to be brushed again so out came the salad.he has quite long ish hair does my spikey. Chocks hair is all short and smooth and silky. Spikes hair is slightly rougher in texture from chocks. Its a bit wiry to be honest. thats because he is part abby and part rex coated.

spike also has an afro lol. It looks like someones taken some of my dread wax and put it through his hair. He looks like he has been dragged through a hedge backwards.

Found a nice new house for the pigs today while out shopping. Didnt pick it up as i wasnt really sure about the price for what it actually was. Pets at home really are a rip off. Will probably end up buying it though as it is nice. Its wooden. Not pine or ceder some other wood. plenty big enough for the both of them.

Chocks personality is like his coat, smooth silky soft and he is really placid and layed back. Spike however is a different thing all together. He is very highly strung. Has lots and lots of energy that he never seems to run out of. Chock would make a fantastic theropy pig as he loves nothing more than a good cuddle with any one that will Have him on their knee for some lap time. He falls asleep on my knee all the time. Means he trusts me enough to do that and i am really touched that he does that.

Goin to the pet shop tomoro morning to get the boys some new toys. A new house if the shop has them in. The pigs dont really need anything but i wanna spoil them big style. Dont think there is anything wrong with wanting to spoil them. brings me and them so much joy when they play with a new lot of toys. i love hearing them play.

Went to pet shop. No houses left. New i should have picked it up when i saw it the other day. On the plus side, the pigs wont run out of hay or substraight for time! They also wont run out of bull rush balls iether as i now have four sitting in the closet and one in use.

I'm not sure if we have herbs we can by from pet stores in the USA. I order my food and hay online. I do buy my gerbil food at PetSmart. I'll look around next time i'm in the store, if I remember. :)

Glad your pigs enjoy the dried herbs and having fun re-decorating their cage. My cage is an utter mess as to encourage my senior pig (who also has arthritis) to eat more hay, I have a pile under her stool so she can nibble. Of course the hay bits then gets everywhere around the cage and caught on the fleece.

I also buy the dried herbs from Burgess as a treat and sprinkle that in their hay. However, as it contains a lot of high calcium herbs, I feed it quite sparingly as a treat.

Now they in their pen tucking in to some alfalfa timathy kings hay. they love it! They love their pen. Gives them a chance to be pigs and do what they would naturally do in the wild. Forage for hay! Cant forget the hay!
