    Indoor Grass Time

    Picked the girls some grass instead of putting them in their run the evening (as I want to watch the olympics !)

    Growing Wheatgrass?

    I don't trust the grass grown around my city seeing as there are pesticides put down, along with cats and dogs using the grass to potty. I was looking into buying wheatgrass seeds to grow so my pigs can have some grass to munch on occasionally. I was wondering if anyone's done it before and...

    Beautiful Beans Enjoying The Grass

    Now that it's a bit cooler outside I thought I'd put Beans on the grass for a while (Toast can't have grass too often as it makes her bloaty). She has an appointment at the vets tomorrow morning to get hormone injections to treat cystic ovaries. So I thought she deserved to stuff her little...

    Hand Picked Grass?

    I'm sure this is a question thats been asked multiple times, but is it okay to pick grass by hand in the garden and feed it to my piggy? I know to make sure it's clean, and there are no dangerous plants. Thanks! Sharna :)

    Grass Time - Pic Heavy

    Grass time for the girls after an early finish from work - a lightening strike took out our internet, server and phones on the early hrs of Thursday morning and the engineers who I'd been on the phones to for the last 2 days were fixing it. The pigs don't care about the political situation, as...

    Grow Your Own Grass

    Just wondering what grass people grow? I like the idea of a mixed bag of pasture grasses and forage herbs, but they're all intended for horses so the bag is rather larger than I need!

    Outdoor Run On Grass

    Hello, I have 2 pigs that live outside in a hutch. I let them into their run daily (weather permitting) with plenty of shade and tunnels/ houses etc. They have lots of safe grass to nibble on and food and water available. I was wondering how long I should leave them in their run for. Is there a...

    First Lawn Time

    My three girls had their first time on the lawn today. I've only got a front lawn at the moment and don't trust the neighbourhood kids so I have to sit out with them. Chewie took the longest to come out the box and BB was the quickest to run back in if anything happened. They had a rug of war...

    Which Grass Seeds?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I'm getting trays to grow grass in for the pigs and I was wondering if there's any grass seeds I should avoid? I'm in B&M and they have about 10 different types but are all suitable for the pigs to munch on?

    Grass Time Piggies

    Thankfully today it's really sunny outside so I managed to get the pigs on the grass for a while. My garden got badly flooded over the winter so there's only a small square of grass that's okay for them to go on, it's enough for them though :nod: After not being out in the sun for a while...

    Beans Has No Manners..

    Beans and Toast have very different personalities. Toast is very polite and elegant, takes her time eating. Beans crams it in like she's never seen food before and has absolutely no table manners what so ever :doh: Toast likes to pick the grass up bit by bit, Beans like to shove it...

    Boys Enjoying Garden Time

    only a short garden time for their first time (I know they are used to grass as rescuer used to feed them grass) but here is the boys enjoying being outside. So nice to see them enjoying it and getting exercise. :luv:

    Pepper And Mustard Experience Grass For The First Time

    The picture shows them about 2 hours into their grassy fun. When they first were put onto the grass they were trying to pull up the roots and were having a hard time in the process. I think they then learnt that the roots don't taste as nice. Has anyone else tried their piggies with raspberry...
