The demolition continues

The poor summer continues to assist the pigs in their attempt to be the last ever pigs accommodated in the really useful space/barn at the end of the garden. Not content with digging their way through the wall of the old sty they have, with the help of the rain, caused a huge landslide through the door facing the hill. Tons of mud has surged through the opening raising the floor inside around two feet in places. This has caused a frantic search for a dryer bed so they have dug underneath the separating wall (in the video above you will see daylight shining through the new gap) only stopping when the old oak beam gave way so collapsing the escape tunnel.

To reward their efforts I gave them a new bale of straw tonight and here you can Blodwyn giving it the once over.
