Liza's October Update

Watkins Glen, NY, is well into fall, but there's still plenty of sunshine for Liza Pig to enjoy. She and her sister Maggie spend their days rooting around in the pig pasture and napping. This cute piggy has got it made!

Since the sun sets earlier, making the evenings cool, Liza and Maggie tuck in earlier than they did in the summer and like to snuggle up with Truffles, the herd matriarch. 

Did you know that it's common for pigs to retain strong familial ties? So it's not at all unusual that Liza and Maggie spend so much time together.

Richard's July Update

Sir Richard would like to wish you all a happy July! He and his friend Marlon are enjoying some new digs at the Watkins Glen Farm Sanctuary location, and they couldn't be more happy that summer is in full swing. 

The last time we checked in with Richard, the snow had only just begun to melt. Now they have new neighbors at their new barn, and a new area to explore for bugs! Chickens make for excellent pest control since they love finding grubs and bugs in the dirt to enjoy as a tasty treat. 

Richard is such a handsome Jersey Giant, and we're thrilled that he can live out his life feeling happy and safe.

Liza's June Update

Remember back in March when we shared photos from Liza's winter expeditions at the Watkins Glen Farm Sanctuary location? Well, it's definitely summer now, and we are loving how happy our pig friend looks out in the green pastures!

Liza still spends a lot of time with her sister and BFF Maggie, and they are happy as can be rooting around, napping in the barn, or taking a mud bath.

Did you know that pigs can get sunburn? Their skin is very sensitive, and they have only a thin layer of coarse hair. So one of the Farm Sanctuary volunteers spends time putting sunscreen on the pigs on the sunny days to help protect them.

Also, pigs don't sweat which is the main reason they love to take mud baths - because the mud helps keep them cool.

Seeing happy piggies makes us so happy, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
