If you buy enough fence to make two more ends and another side you can build the new pen with one side shared with the old one, then take a panel out of the dividing fence and they will go to the new area to check it out and you can then close it up and take down the other three sides of the old pen. Some people keep pigs in with just an electric wire but I have never tried it myself. As far as pigs waiting nicely while you move their pen I have never seen any that would, but they may be out there somewhere. This time of year you will need a way to keep the water from freezing and some kind of shelter on skids that you can drag around. We only do pigs in the warmer months, so I have no winter experience.

Didja ever try to get hogs back in the pen after they got out? Seems they want to keep going around the gate instead of through it.

Yup, and then city folks come to see us and tell us how pigs are so smart.

I got my doubts unless you live in a fairly mild state. Hogs don't do so well being outside 100% of the time, and what happens if you get a 2' snowstorm?, got someplace to bring them in to...and feed? Also if you use panels and are late to move them just a bit, with all the surrounding food, they WILL be out!
