Tiny Pig Feet

tiny pig feet

Believe it or not, that massive body is held up quite admirably by these tiny little feeters! When the herd passes by, it sounds like a herd of tiny horses – they actually make a clopping sound. Not exactly a “thundering herd” sound, but enough to certainly know they are stomping around out in the yard, even if it is dark and we can’t see them.

Their mouths are interesting, too. The mouth area is a bit recessed under this snout.

      What do they eat in your garden? Here they concentrate on acorns.

      I can’t keep anything growing in the yard because of the “critters” that tromp through here. There are mostly tiny hoof marks in the gravel in the yard, but sometimes there are bigger ones. And at some times of the year, there are a fair amount of deer. They love to nibble on tree leaves.

      Once, when we were away, the cows came through our yard and out into the complex. They had to actually call cowboys to come round them up! They gobbled my roses on the way through!
