On our small holding we keep a variety of animals including pigs and sheep. In the last week I have had to move both our new ewe and lambs and two of our pigs. The two events sort of went like this:
"Oooh, look" said Coco Chanel to Peardrop "the 2 legged one has arrived with a bucket of food and is walking away - we had best follow her then."
2 pigs dutifully followed me and my bucket to their new field and in fact Peardrop even ran ahead and through the gate remembering from last time where to go. The only reason Coco was after her was she stopped, briefly, to eat some potato peelings I had dropped. Job done.
"Oooh, look" said Mrs Wolowitz (Mum) to Howard and Sheldon, her lambs "the 2 legged one has arrived with a bucket of food and a friend. Run - run in opposite directions and at no point go through that open gate even though the grass on the other side looks much greener and the field much larger. Run!"
... which is why, as well as a friend, I had to call on the boys to help and even then it took us ages to move them.
And that, my dear readers is why I prefer sheep to pigs. We don't of course mention the fact that Coco is currently is season so it using all her wily tricks to try and get to Boris including lifting the gate off it's hinges. No, we won't mention that.
Do you have a preference to pigs or sheep?
