Caring for the animals – settler’s farm in the snow

Emsland Moormuseum is in the throes of winter. Except for very young piglets, all the museum’s animals live outside the year round. Snow, ice and plummeting temperatures mean that special care is needed for the pigs, geese and sheep in the outdoor grounds. The Bentheim Black Pied pigs get copious amounts of straw in their sties, and extra portions of carrots, of course. The frigid temperatures do not bother the pigs at all. They gambol in the snow and cheerfully plough up the grassland in spite of the frost.
