Patches knows her name.AVI

I haven't written much about the piggies living with us, but I wanted to include this video from yesterday. Piggies are VERY intelligent. Some people claim their intelligence is greater than that of dogs. Our piggies are certainly more clever than at least 2 of our dogs, but don't tell them that; it would only serve to hurt their feelings.

Miss Patches was out enjoying the sunshine, rooting about in the afternoon, when I filmed this clip. She clearly answers to her name and when I speak to her, she comes to me wanting attention. I love that.

You may also notice the escaped Rhode Island Red hen in the piggie pen. I returned the wretched fowl and another who I found in with the goats, after filming. Sean nor I have seen their escape and cannot fathom how they are doing it. I think we are going to have to do something to tighten up their enclosure. Besides providing much entertainment, our ladies are laying over a dozen eggs each day, which around these parts equals CASH. It will not suit to allow the only critters on our farm that make us money (so far) to go wandering off to get eaten by a fox, neighboring dog, or other carnivore!

Hope you all have a great Friday!
