    Default My first time with a pig

    I think we our all used to seeing roaming cattle,roosters,sheep/goat like things,horses and donkeys......today I saw scavanging pigglets, has anyone else seen pigs gone wild.

    I would have thought they would be a valuable thing to allow to wander wild and possibly not the best creatures at finding their way home if in fact they belonged to anyone.

    They wander on to our property all the time, my husband has a fit because they eat whatever you've planted. More than a few 'discussions' with their owners. In the campo they wander freely and then go home, sometimes the mama has the babies close behind.

    Given the opportunity, piglets like all young animals will take the opportunity to explore but, when its tea time or something goes wrong, they will soon run back to Mummy!

    I am surprised that after all that damage done to your property and discussions with the owner who had done nothing in that regard to educate his pigs, one of those piggies had not yet "accidentally got lost and disappeared" on or near your property...

    LOL Rubio, the thought has crossed our minds. I hear that some of the wandering chickens have ended up in a pot when my suegra is there

    Of course, the fault is partially ours, because sometimes we leave our gate open.

    Since they have started building a new house further down the street (wow! a second house on the block! lol) there is a night guard and of course he has a chicken and a rooster.
    The rooster passes every day our gate and this morning he was very bold and jump up the gate just in front of our border collie.
    Luckely she was so surprised of the boldness of the rooster, she just backed of...not sure what she will do next time
