Winston's First Walk in the Woods

It was a lovely winter day here today.  We decided to take piglet with us as we went for a short walk in the woods on our property.  Winston typically stays in the meadow or pastures and doesn't venture into the woods.  We thought it was time to see if he liked it.

As we set out he was very curious.  He stayed right with us as we made our way down to the trees. For the first half of the walk he was fantastic, keeping right up and enjoying his new surroundings. We went further than we intended so his walk was long.  About half way through he stopped and wasn't interested in continuing.  After some coaxing with cookies and a few minutes of rest we were back underway.  He did great for the rest of the walk.  He was quite happy to see the meadow and know we were almost home.

Needless to say - there was a long nap this afternoon.  He is a good boy....
