Flying Pig
« on: January 27, 2008, 05:46:39 pm »
We had friends staying this weekend and this morning Linda came in after helping with feeding and was amazed to tell me that she had just witnessed her first flying pig - not pink but black and she wasn't drunk either!

It was one of Pot Belly X's - she left her babies squeeling and jumped three fences - clearing each of them like a pro to get to Linda with the food bucket!

Wish I could do that!

Must have been the Red Bull.......... unlike chickens and ducks,it is advised to clip BOTH wings on pigs.
They don’t join cliques — more times than not, they stand alone — but they recognize and gravitate towards one another. Only warriors understand other warriors.
