Snoring Micro Pig

By Joanne Rowe / February 18, 2013

Went out last night to put the hens away, and I could here Coco our micro pig snoring really loudly.

I could hear her from the other side of the farm. So I shot in the house and grabbed the video camera and torch, and shot this footage. I do apologize about the shakiness of the video but I had the torch in one hand and the camera in the other.



Behind her is Petal our other sow, and Murphy our boar. The other two are as quiet as mice when sleeping. I just wonder if she keeps them up at night.

    This can be normal. As long as your pig is eating they should be fine. If they are ever off their food then you should be concerned and possibly seek advice from a vet
