Walking Piggies

A few days ago I shared a video with you about walking the pigs up to their grazing yard.
The video was all about the preparation...
with nothing about the actual walk.
Today we walk (ok, we run).

As a side note, we have stream-lined the "getting dressed" portion of our walks.
I have opted to place the harness behind their front legs,
rather than trying to catch both legs inside the harness.
With their portly bellies, this has worked just fine,
and is a heck of a lot less work!

Once inside their yard, I remove the harness and lead rope
( they are short on patience these days!)

Hope this made you giggle just a bit!
Have a perfectly lovely weekend..full of holiday cheer!
See you Monday for more Tails from the Farm.

You have such beautiful piggies! Ours pot bellied was mainly black with a white spot on his forehead and his nose. We lost him in February of this year...and this time of year is getting hard.

It was great to see yours running (as Squiggy used to do) and to hear all those wonderful noises. Thank you for sharing the video!!

Not able to view UTube at school - so funny!! Wish I could show the kids at school --- the neat part is also the sounds of all the animals, including the piggies.Hope before they get much larger - they'll have the routine down and will walk/run on their own to their fenced in yard. How will they be when it gets realy cold?? Will they need to wear a sweater when they go out??
Love your turkies too!! looks like they are enjoying the piggies too!
