I moved her from a big pen to a smaller one that had a loading ramp thinking it would be a piece of cake to get her loaded in a borrowed stock trailer. Well, Porkchop, that was her name, apparently decided she had a headache and wasn't interested. I tried giving her a father/ daughter pep talk but it didn't work. I tried a pointy stick. Bad choice, she wouldn't load.
I went to my rancher/neighbor and borrowed a battery operated cattle prod figuring if I gave her a buzz on the butt she'd come 'round. Didn't work.
My wife suggested that it might be a good idea to bring the boy pig over to our place. I have to admit, I married a smart Cracker. I took her advice.
I think the boy pig had some experience because he galloped into the trailer, sat down and got a "What are we waiting for look on his face." It worked.
Porkchop did herself proud and birthed six piglets.That's when I learned that little piglets come with a built in defense mechanism. They respond to a perceived threat, real or imagined by squealing as if the imps of hell were after them.
