Chuck’s wallowing!

Four year-old Micro pig, Chuck, had fun in the sun as he wallowed in the mud.

Trainee keeper, Amy Paddock, made the made the muddy bath for the farm’s pigs which acts as a natural sunscreen.

Farm Section Leader, Lesley Lewis, said: “Amy dug the wallow and added water to it for the pigs to enjoy and Chuck was soon rolling about and having a great time splashing in the water.

“Not only does it help the pigs cool down in the warm weather, the mud covers their skin and protects it from the sun and then when it dries out it conditions it too.”
