Walk Around the Farm With Susie: Pigs Go to Bed

One thing we see time and again when we rescue pigs — especially those who’ve come from factory farms or been forced to live in pens consisting only of mud or in concrete-floored barns — is that bedding is what they seem to enjoy and want the most.


Noah and Portia hate to be disturbed when napping!

Now, I love to sleep, and nothing feels better than sleeping in soft, comfortable bedding. Sleep needs to feel safe, secure, warm, and snuggly — and no one appreciates this more than a pig.


The family that nests together stays together.

So today’s walk around the farm is all about pigs and going to bed! We will watch as our rescue-barn resident pigs make their beds and get ready to sleep. With the snow falling down right now and temperatures dropping into the teens, nothing says comfort like a warm, soft bed!

So sit back and watch some of our pigs get comfy — and I hope you all have an equally comfortable and happy sleep!


Eric started out snuggling on a stuffed pig, and now he does the same with his real friend Bob and in snuggly straw!


Bob and Eric now — Bob is the live version of the Gund pig above!
