We are Rachel and Ben. Rachel is a secondary science teacher (biology) and Ben is a self employed musician. Ben is the reason we have hogs. Rachel grew up with animals and spent most of her time before going to uni at the Royal Veterinary College so pets have been a big part of her life. When Ben came along he was scared of most animals as he wasn't used to being around them. Rachel bought him The Hoff as a valentine's present (who could be scared of a hog?) and it all started from there. Rachel and Ben now live in East London with their hogs and other pets. They got married this year.
