My brother had a bumper sticker:
DON'T TRY TO TEACH A PIG TO SING
IT WASTES TIME AND ANNOYS THE PIG!
We lost a tree. A beautiful tree fell over in looking at the tree I found a water leak they are not close enough that I think one caused the other. The water line needed to be repaired and that meant turning off the water to the pigs for several hours.
The pigs drink out of a nozzle not water bucket like the rest of the animals. I did not have a way to use a nozzle without the water being on. They do a set up at the fair but we are not showing our pigs so we don't have it.
In my infinite wisdom I decided to teach the pigs to drink out of the bucket.
I grabbed one pig and put it's nose near the water NOT even INTO the water and
it squealed so
badly the dogs came running,
Luca saw it was me and started watching the perimeter of the pen.
the chickens started squawking,
and I fell into the mud from the knocked over bucket.
The pigs survived 2 hours with no water without any problems.
