Making a cohort of pigs

The pink pigs have just been introduced to the other pigs. They're a little scared; the other pigs are bigger, and more important, they're stranger pigs. They'll work it out. In the lower right hand corner one of the pink pigs has spotted shorty nursing her piglets, and is going over to say hello. They instinctually view larger pigs as safety.

I'm keeping them in fairly close proximity for a few days, and then they'll move out to a circular pen to condition them to respect the electric fence.
