Herz is a sow. Like all pigs used in the farming industry, she was born on a farm and then moved to another to be fattened for slaughter. At five months old, Herz would have been loaded with hundreds of other terrified pigs into a lorry and sent to her death. But, thankfully, Herz escaped this horrible fate. A friend of the farmer’s daughter convinced her to allow them to take three piglets. Three out of thousands.

Now Herz is now a fully grown adult but, due to her terrible start in life and the deliberate genetic manipulation that pigs bred in factory farms are subjected, she will always have health issues. Despite this, she has such a love for life and loves to bask in the sun, dig in the sand, eat, sleep and facing each day with eyes that convey all the happiness in the world. Herz has a special relationship with Hart.
