Pigs Trotters....

Well, I've given Ianto his first trotter today - the furry nose at the side of the photo is his....

After a little confusion, he's had a good ol' chew and is now out in the garden trying to dig a hole in the concrete to hide it! :lol:

You can get them from various places, including Waitrose. If you are struggling to find them locally, you can buy them on-line.

I got my lovely piggies pinkies from Morrisons... (I think they've been on MasterChef and are in vogue for hooms at the moment! :roll: )
Ianto took it out to his Montbretia 'nest' in the garden and all the OH could find later was the horrible-looking 'palm' bit... it's in the fridge now :shock:
I'm a little worried as I didn't think he'd be able to scoff the bone bit - at least, not so quickly - thought I'd be able to take it away once the meaty bit had been nibbled away... Think I may have to carry extra pooh bags on our walks tomorrow :roll:

Update on the trotter/pooh front.... No problem! I was worried as previously, when he's had bone, it's upset his digestion but the trotter, bone 'n' all has gone down very well. The only problem is, when I gave him his beef chunks for lunch today, he looked really disappointed - and they disappeared in no time! (Once he'd given me a look that said, "Is that it???")
Onwards and upwards on the raw feeding front!! :D
