I have been trying to spend more time in the pig pen to make sure that Lady-Bug is comfortable around us.  I want to make sure she won’t be afraid if we are nearby when she goes into labor.  This way we can help her if necessary.  I decided to bring out some peanut butter to lure her over to me today.  She will eat out of my hands now which is a huge improvement from her running like crazy in the opposite direction.  She is definitely still timid without the use of food.


Once they got a taste of it, Houidini and Lady-Bug were all about the peanut butter.  It took a few licks to get the concept they couldn’t also eat the metal spoon.


As you can hear in the video, they have excellent table manners: Pigs & Peanut Butter 

In the end, Houidini attempted to take it all for himself.

Redhead, pigs can be pretty entertaining, can't they? My grandson thought your short video of pigs eating peanut butter fascinating. Now he wants a pig. I told him that it's not allowed to have a pig in the city. Have a great little piggy day.
