We have a small group of piglets that like to venture away from momma pig when during daylight hours. They will only go so far from their momma=dinner. I have a habit of squealing the word "PIGGIES" in a very high pitched tone whenever I see them out and about. Here is what usually happens.
The piglets are peacefully eating leftover sweet potatoes in the field. Then I yell "PIGGIES"
They all start running.
Some even run like rabbits.
The running slows to an indifferent walk.
And it always ends with them standing together. They always look as though they'd say, "What just happened?"
I do this at least once a day. Sometimes I do it multiple times a day. It always goes the exact same way. Once they are weaned and given a pasture of their own, they will just look at me and ask where there food is. No more piggie runs. I guess I might as well enjoy it while I still can.
