Drywall Protection Zone

So - I have posted several times about the piglet nibbling on the drywall.  I decided to take matters into my own hands and came up with an idea that I handed over to my incredibly handy father in law. He took the idea and ran with it and today - we installed said drywall protection!  Woohoo!!

Prior to install

A purely decorative awning for Winston's closet - it just fits with the picket fence thing

Checking out the happenings in his area - he was behind his baby gate but was very curious about what was happening

Making progress on installation

The wall behind his bench

He's hiding under his blankets - not a fan of the strange noises the drill makes

The small section by the garage door

Winston's new awning
All done

The Divine Miss Em - our lovely assistant
He has tried several ways to fit that cute little snout between the slats but it hasn't worked!  He has tried biting on the fence to pull it away from the wall - didn't work.  He got so frustrated that he took it out on his coat - he hates his coat and every time I put it on he bites it. When we got home from lunch he had pulled his coat off the bench and given it the what for.  Now that they have been up for a few hours - he ignores them.  He is napping under his blanket after getting some cookies in his belly.  Life with a pig is CRAZY!!!  Love him!
