I have always heard that pigs were pretty smart animals. Maybe so. I brought home this piglet and tossed it in the pen, thinking that before it got cold I'd have to build a shelter. Next morning when I got outside the pig was shivering. So--feeling a bit guilty about that I started looking around for a temporary shelter. Eyes fell on a fibreglass tub from a motor home--neighbor thought it might make a watering trough. It had a six-inch rim around two sides and was odd-shaped to fit in a corner. Anyway, I added rim around two more of the 5 sides with 2 x 6's and when turned upside down in made a "sort-of" doghouse. By the time I filled a corner of the pen with old hay and set the tub inside I thought it would at least keep the pig out of the rain. This morning the pig was nowhere to be seen and the "doghouse" pig shelter had no entrance--the entrance was shoved full of hay. When I called "piggie, piggie" the pig stuck its nose out of the hay and pushed its way thru the entrance. Lawsy me; snug as a bug in a rug. I watched off and on thru the day; there is no question that the piglet has adopted the tub as its quarters, and it knows how to close up the opening. I'll have to be careful that it does not learn the numbers to my bank accounts. And I still have to build that shelter.
