So, with a little advice and help from people who know much more than we do (which isn't saying much) - we are undertaking Operation Piggy Plump. We decreased her space from 12 x 12 to 4 x12, since she's mostly been running laps around her pen to keep her lean figure. We are feeding her different food, a hot mash to encourage her appetite, and we got her a new waterer and food trough hoping that would help her intake. And, this weekend we built her a little house where she can stay warmer in the cold weather. Quite a project she has become!
It has been SO COLD, wet, and nasty around here lately! Things are improving for the weekend, but all that rain and bad weather makes for a nasty barn. Rutted up with mud and poop, we have a busy weekend ahead.
