Frida, a mini pig with a special character, has been spending her life at Gut Aiderbichl Henndorf for a few months now. The barn where she lived until she was taken in was demolished and the owner started looking for a new home for her. The five-year-old mini pig could no longer stay on her own farm.
Frida the new boss
in the pig palace
Frida confidently shares the space in the Henndorf Pig Palace with all the other pigs.
"I already noticed that I could no longer stay on the farm where I come from. At some point, a red car called "Tierretter von Gut Aiderbichl" (animal rescuers from Gut Aiderbichl) came. The people tried to lure me up there: with good treats. We pigs are curious and clever by nature, so I took a look at the inside of the car and immediately lay down in the straw.
Frida's self-confidence is unsurpassable. She had no problems settling in and was also quickly accepted by the other Aiderbichl pigs. She is curious and wants to know what is going on at the farm.
"We have a new mini pig on the farm, have you seen it yet, Ronja?" asked Marie, the donkey. "Yes, I've already noticed her, in the morning she comes into the donkey stall with her short legs and makes strange noises".
Love knows no borders
Our new mini pig Frida loves the donkeys more than anything. In the morning, when the pigs come out into the open, she walks with haste to the donkey stall where the animal keepers are putting the donkeys' halters on. Then she walks across the yard towards the horse stable alley and greets Lisa and Bernie, the two donkeys. They move back and forth between the stable alley and the animal buffet all day. In between, they spend some time together with Frida in front of the horse stable alley and greet the guests who are waiting for the tour of the farm.
"It's really exciting to be able to live here in this animal welfare community. In the evening we all have to go to the stable. I don't like that at all. Outside on the farm and on the pastures is much more exciting, but that's just the way it is. I try to delay going into the stable as long as possible and like to hide behind the donkey stall. The animal keepers don't find me there right away.
It is indeed the case that Frida is the last animal to be brought into the stable.
Frida has become the darling of the adults and the children. On the occasion of a children's birthday, she became a real star again, making everyone laugh. Little Frida walked along with the group of children. The young birthday group took our senior dog group for a walk around the farm with the animal keepers. Suddenly Alfi, our dachshund, fell in love with Frida and wanted to join her.
"And you know what? He tried to hold me by my curly tail. I have very long white bristles. He couldn't hold me because the bristles slipped through his little teeth. The children laughed. I tried to tell Alfi by grunting that he should not do that. But dogs bark and don't understand our grunts. So I just ran faster with my short legs and went to the geese in the meadow. I grunted, Alfi barked at me and the geese cackled loudly".
Frida, our mini pig, is an absolute enrichment and we are glad that she has found a "forever home" with us. If you are looking for her: She has very light skin, long, soft, white bristles that are especially long between her small ears. She is always smiling and grunting to herself - it is not difficult to identify Frida.
The stable in which Frida lived was demolished. The owners asked Gut Aiderbichl for help, as they had no other option. So Frida came to Gut Aiderbichl, where she now lives until her...
