So how are you keeping cool? Our pigs love a cold shower and paddle in their wallow!

What's your favourite tip for cooling down? Jo puts her socks in the freezer (in a bag of course) for cool feet. Personally it's frozen yoghurt as a snack. Why not share your tips with us?

Did you know that pigs need to cover themselves in mud to keep cool?
