Spring Time in the Pasture
The new batch of pigs have ventured out and they are ruling the world in their minds! The big old barn offers warmth, security, food, and fresh water, but what the pigs really love is the open pasture. They are eating fresh grass, rooting for grubs and worms, and settling down into the freshly rooted soil for a cool ground bath!
The little pigs also wait in anticipation for a chicken or a lamb to unsuspectingly wander into the pasture. The chase is one of the pigs favorite games. The prize is an up close and personal sniff and then a quick turn and run away. The little pigs are always disappointed when the sheep and the chickens don't take their turn chasing! However, the dogs are good sports and actively watch from outside the fence line! Never a dull moment on the farm!
