Pretty Phoebe started life in a university laboratory. She and her siblings were used in a study on hoof growth. The students caring for them became very attached. At the end of the study, the piglets were taken to auction, where the students bought them back. Unfortunately, having no where to stash the piglets proved problematic, and the students snuck them back onto the agriculture campus. When they were discovered, leadership demanded that they be removed. And luckily for the pigs, one of the professors knew about us and asked if we could take them. We were happy to! Phoebe and her sisters, Piper and Prudence, got to stay together and have beautiful lives. We lost beautiful, affectionate Phoebe in early 2019, and she was preceded in death by her sisters, Piper and Prudence. We will cherish our memories of these sweet girls.
