Porcine Postscript

I mentioned earlier that Wynonna’s morning vocalizations are rather loud. Since words cannot begin to describe their true nature, come with me as we feed Wynonna her breakfast. (Make sure you’ve got your speakers on.)

We will walk out to the barn, where the porcine princess stands at her gate. You will see that Willie, the goat, finds her noises quite disturbing and only makes matters worse with the occasional headbutt. Once the gate is opened, Wynonna waddles down to the front porch, where she will dine al fresco. She is literally foaming at the mouth in anticipation by the time she gets there. I will toss her pot-bellied-pig food (yes, there is such a thing) onto the concrete, the idea here being that as she walks around looking for each and every morsel, she will help wear down her hooves. Then we will listen to her munch. Ready? (Don’t say I didn’t warn you.)

  1. You were not exaggerating those vocalizations!

    What a girl - I love her march to the al fresco dining.

  2. Just lovely to be serenaded in the morning. Stop by and pick up an award when you get the chance.

  3. I've had to play this video about 500 times for my toddlers, who laugh hysterically the whole time!

  4. Karen, the image of your kids laughing at Wynonna over and over and over again has me in hysterics now. That's my pig...spreading her charm wherever she goes.

  5. LOL!! OMG, that is so funny! If ever I'm feeling down and in need of a laugh, I'll be playing this video. The lip smacking was really the piece d'resistance. I think it's very sweet how the goat follows close on Wynonna's heels, btw. Thanks for sharing that - it's really too good to miss out on.

  6. It was like watching my children at breakfast when the head butting started. LOL. Your ranch has me wondering if I am raising children or something else.
