pigs snoozing part 2

One of the things about the pig social groups is that they almost always involve at least 3 generations of pigs. An older pig or two, a couple of medium pigs, and a few young or very young pigs. It starts out with a piglet following around a bigger pig and learning from it. That piglet eventually grows up, and piglets start following it around, and the multi-generational friend group is born. Across the bottom of this picture is big momma, one of our oldest sows at 4 years old. To the left in the center is the long pig, so called because she's got a really long body. to the right are the two youngest pigs. This is a social group.
