You have sponsored Herbie’s new home. Our lovely pig Herbie and DAKTARI thank you very much to make this possible.
With the money you sponsored we were able to build a bigger and stronger enclosure for Herbie. We put in a cemented floor, so he cannot dig out or nothing else can dig in. He has 2 separate enclosures, one for the night, which has a roof, so no leopard or any other predator can get in. And the other one is for during the day, now he has a lot more space to roam around in.
He loves playing in the mud and wallowing, but I think his preferred activity is EATING!!! We take him on 2 walks every day and he seems a lot happier now! Cleaning his enclosure is something different though. He really eats and lives like a pig!!
The local children we teach every week, usually like Herbie. Initially they are a bit afraid because he has gotten so big, but after a couple of days they realize that he is a sweetheart. We explain them that he is a cross breed between a bush pig and a domestic pig (which shouldn’t happen) and that they are very intelligent animals.
Thank you very much for your support toward Herbie’s new home, you have been exceptionally generous!
