When visiting Kevin & Francis yesterday, we noticed some curious behaviour. Are the boys wrestling, posing for the camera or starting to get a little frisky? I am reading a book, The Good Good Pig by Sy Montgomery. She has a pet pig (700 pounds worth) that loves belly rubs. Apparently many pigs appreciate this and will roll onto their backs to accommodate it. Sy has even achieved this with a rhinoceros! I tried with Kevin and Francis but only managed a brief roll on the ground.
