After a weirdly mild winter with none of the traditional month of deep snow and freezing temperatures, we are in a week of deep snow as a result of the Siberian weather hitting Europe.  Just wanted to share some fun pictures of our breeding pair of pigs in the snow this morning at feeding time.  We have a metre of snow in places, and about 40-50cm in other places (or more in the wind drifts).

If you've got some pictures of your porcines enjoying the winter weather (or the challenges you faced with them) why not upload them for everyone to see.
