Feeding the Pigs with Minnie Meg and Bean

Feeding time is not an easy process when your assistants are called Minnie, Meg and Bean. Last night Minnie thought it a good idea to hurdle the pig fence and make friends with the pigs. Which actually meant jumping in the pen with them and getting over excited then running at 100 mph around both stunned pigs in a sort of figure of 8.

Bean saw this and thought it looked like the best game ever but having slightly shorter legs than Minnie could not manage the fence so went off at a pace round the perimeter looking for a gap to get through and instead of finding one she had walked all the way around it until she got to the only place you can get trapped.

No matter how many times I shouted Minnie to get out she ignored me.

To top it all Meg decided to take up her position just at the gate in a motionless poise trying out her new game of Pigging. She waited for them to come over and then jumps towards the gate inbetween the bars and trys to snap at a snout.

Basically it was bedlam.

She is not helping me again!
