I don’t know if it’s smooth. I’ll touch it tomorrow.

So is it edible for the piggies then?

The consensus of opinion seems to be that it Is dock, which would have smooth leaves. I had thought it might be teasle, which has rough spots over its surface, but teddymouse has pointed out that it has seed heads like a dock's.
@teddymouse feeds it to her piggies, so I guess it's safe. I've never tried it with my pigs though.

It seems only young dock leaves are safe for piggies - definately not with seed heads
there is a great guide for foraging on the guineapiggles.co.uk site

Definitely dock, but I can also see some Milk Thistle flower heads there, that is a plant they can eat. It’s the white heads that have gone to seed
