Now how did he do that?

So guess who I found back in with his mother today?

This littlest wandering piglet. Here’s a picture of him weeks ago when he could still fit through the small squares in the fence. He’s a much bigger piglet now.

I’m still not even sure how he escaped the weaning pen. And I’m really not sure how he was able to get back into the big pig pen with Willow. He is a master of the art of escapage. But this won’t do. Willow needs the fatties to be away from her, eating big pig food and growing without dependence on her milk. She needs to gain back some weight and the piglets need to be able to fend for themselves. Plus, this little guy is supposed to go to his new home this week end.

So tomorrow we shall move him back into the weaning pen with his brothers. And then I will watch him diligently to see where he is squirming out of the pen and in through the fence with his mother.

We should call him “Houdini”.

Today’s count: 43 eggs; 2 gallons milk.

Weather: A 40 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 34. High 65. North northeast wind 5 to 7 mph.

Supper: chicken and mushrooms over mashed potatoes and carrots.
