Playful and Sneaky Pigs

When my niece comes to visit, she loves to spend time with all the animals on our small 5 acre farm. As soon as she arrived, she put on her boots and went out to see all the animals, curious to know which ones would let them pet her. The animals share the same field. The chickens like to clean up after the cows and pigs. She started with the chickens, then went to the pigs, and then off to the cows. The thing was, she didn't know the pigs were following behind her. As she was waiting for the cow to trust her enough to pet her, the pigs were sniffing her over. "I think you have a new friend. Turn around." She turned and screamed because she was oblivious the pig was that close to her all this time. We had a good laugh and she gave the pigs the attention they were desiring. Our pigs have been so fun to watch. They make a mess and are always dirty, but they love to graze the fields, run and play, and they are very loving! Just keep moving your toes or else they will nibble them off!
