This pig, like all of our animals (with the exception of our sheepy girl, Faith), is an opportunist. Give her an open gate, and she happily steps through and continues on her merry way. Typically, she's looking for something snack-worthy. After all... pig.
Yesterday, I was away from the farm and Hubbs and the dogs installed all of his handmade birdhouses around the farm.
The cardinal and chickadee are now on the pasture fences that line our driveway.
The goldfinch sits on the fence by our barn driveway,
and the bluejay found a home atop an old, dead apple tree trunk in the sheep/pig yard.
Upon completing that task, he "may have" left the sheep yard gate open.
Ginger, apparently, seeing the opportunity, seized it.
It wasn't until afternoon chores, when Hubbs was at the barn and heard Faith hollering that he realized something was amiss.
There was Ginger on the opposite side of the pasture fence (the road side).
Luckily, we get barely any cars on our road during the day. Also, Ginger will stay in the grass, as that is where the eating happens!
A couple of graham crackers later, and Hubbs had her merrily on her way back into the pasture.
Much to Faith's relief!
