Robbie is full of it. Always. Mischief and trouble with a capital T. He should be working on a cattle farm where he could bite the cows and move them along all day. That is where his lineage lies. We have been working on his commands for some time now and also on watching, not herding and not biting. He is slowly coming around and is especially good with the baby Berkshires. Today, I let the piggies out for a jaunt around the birds areas. It is good for the species to intermingle so that when the birds free range and the pigs are older, chickens and ducks do not become snacks for the grown up pigs. It helps the animals all become used to one another. The piggies were very good too, and Robbie made it his job to keep an eye on them. I eventually had to tie Robbie up with a leash and take him with me to get the piggies back to their own pen, because he would always head them off and send them away. They finally went in and were fed and watered and the door was closed. I can now pet them both, giving them some good scratches on the belly and behind the ears. They are so cute!
