Is This Too Big To Eat?

Mary @msiegle mentioned in my photo about the hickory nuts that the Pignut Hickory is so named because wild hogs liked to eat the nuts. She asked me if my pigs, Grunt and Suie, liked them too. I didn't know for sure so took them on a "field" trip to find out. Considering the scale of the nut it was hard to tell if they liked it or not. They didn't immediately turn away so I am going to assume they were trying to figure out how to get it open so they could eat it.

Posting early as a granddaughter is in a Junior Miss competition this evening and I will be there..
How cute the rwo look trying to find a way to crack the huge nut. I guess we know where your granddaughter got her genes from! Hope you all had a great time 😊

Ha ha ha Oh, Katy — poor Grunt and Suie. YOU, being the person big enough to handle the nuts, need to open them and cut into pig sized portions. If they like them, you could feed the little squealers — to borrow the term from Francoise @francoise — very cheaply for a good while with a little gathering now, before the squirrels finish them all off. But it sounds like they weren’t instinctively and enthusiastically drawn to the nuts, so maybe it’s an acquired taste.

I think they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

@mcsiegle @grammyn awesome. I think Mr Pig's squealers would love to meet these two for sure.

Haha! I can't stop laughing!

This may or may not be true, but I read this on the internet: If you're having a tough time finding something, remember that even a blind pig can find an acorn once in a while. This encouraging idiom actually comes from ancient Rome, where the concept of a blind animal turning something up lent itself to the Latin saying that a blind dove sometimes finds a pea.
