He is a strong piglet, a male, and is name Little John, after the very first lamb born on The Fat Ewe Farm, a four horned Jacob named Little Johnny. The fate of Little John remains unknown at this time. The pigs are livestock more than they are pets, though Wilbur is personable and friendly and loves to be petted. He is also very very smart and had figured out how to open his gate and take a walk about the yard. Now the gate is bound with a tight bungy cord and though he knows how to open the gate, he does not know how to undo the cord, thank goodness. Clara and Little John just follow Wilbur, or rather, Clara follows Wilbur and Little John follows Clara. But Little John was out on his own yesterday, as he is growing and getting bolder. I am trusting that dogs will leave him alone. The border collie, Robbie, is the only one I would be concerned about, because he loves the chase and understands that the piglet is not where he is supposed to be, therefore , Robbie's instincts are to rectify that situation and get him home.
Potbelly meat is supposedly the best of all pork and the pigs are on the farm as meat animals. Whether or not I can actually eat this baby when he is the right size will remain a mystery until then.
