Baron and Sasha were purchased as young piglets and kept together in a pen for a while. Their owner had intended to breed them (to other, non-related pigs) but never got around to it. He grew quite attached to these sweet youngsters as time passed. As the pigs were growing, they were moved to a stall in an old barn on a friend's unused property. This was to be a temporary plan before they could be moved to a larger area with some grass. Unfortunately, the move never happened because the owner became incarcerated. The roof had a large hole, directly over their stall. They were standing, sleeping and eating in mud and excrement up to their bellies. It was a mess. While the pigs were always fed and loved, they were living in an extremely unsanitary environment. They could only peep at the outside world through a missing slat in the wall of their stall. One of the wonderful people that were caring for the pigs reached out to see if we could rescue them, and of course we could not say no. They are both very easy going and passive pigs that seem to love the freedom here. They have taken easily to the companionship of both the humans and the new pigs they’ve met.
