A few weeks ago when Mr. Farmer went to collect the two breeder piglets he had bartered for and purchase a couple more for resale, he ended up with one more than expected. Scooter weighs less than 10 pounds and is learning to walk on a harness designed for a small dog. He is also learning to harass his litter mates by slipping out through a gap in the fence, having a little snack on the accidentally spilled food out there, then returning smugly to the safety of the enclosure. The little guy actually looks like he is proud of himself!
Scooter is so small and so quick that it is almost impossible to photograph him. Like most pigs, however, he is very social and does not like to be alone. So, on the few occasions when we have taken him around to show him off, we usually take our partner's new puppy, Ivory, along for company. They are becoming fast friends, and when they rest together I can snap a quick picture.
