I like your idea Sylvia, we are due to load 2 saddlebacks tomorrow afternoon ready for Monday morning. Will definately be looking to test out your idea for loading, we have got to walk our 2 through a small wooded area before we get to the trailer so that should be fun.
;D  :pig:

Pigby's just remember to keep the dustbin firmly over the pig's head. Any chink of daylight and it will make for it. Hope your loading goes easily! :pig: :pig:

All loaded and settled ready to go!!!  I really am Ssssssssoooooooo silly. i got myself all wound up worrying about if they escaped. had the coral set up and the fencing blanked off with tarpauline. It was probably overkill but as a first timer i didnt want to take chances.

Bless them they followed me almost in 'Babe' formation. Into the trailer and noses into the buckets of feed soaked with cider. ... they are now snoring happily and seem cosy...and content. It couldnt have been easier....i suppose preperation was the key.

Now I feel guilty.....Why do our animals trust us so easily. 

Ha, i suppose it could all go pear shaped at the other end!!

I'll just have to toast them at the first pork meal.

I'm glad they loaded well for you Emma (you're comment about them being couthy had me suspecting they were just a tiny bit pampered and would go exactly where you did  ;))
Don't for one minute feel guilty - your animals trust you because you cared for them and looked after them well, they've had the freedom of living in a field with their trotters in the grass and snouts in the mud - so many other wee piggies don't get that chance :(
I'm sure everything will go just as smoothly for the unloading..........let me know how tasty the Berkshire pork is, won't you ? But don't make it too mouth watering sounding or my two 'breeders' might not make it that far  ;) ;D ;D ;D

Well done, so pleased it all went well.  Enjoy your pork and dont forget to start looking for the next 2 soon.  They really are so addictive, especially once you realise how versatile pork is.
