Q: What do you do when a 300 pound sow is wandering around the yard?

A: I don’t know.

Khella has escaped from her pen with Festus. I don’t want to do anything that will completely stress her out. But, she’s not into food and won’t lead on it, especially since she has all the grass in the world she could want.

She absolutely refuses to enter ANY pen. She’s very smart and she doesn’t want to go anywhere where she will feel trapped. She’s sleeping at night in a pile of hay in our blown down barn (another story) and she isn’t really doing any damage, other than emptying our chicken feeders.

In all, I’ve got a couple of ideas, but would like to hear more.

    Put up a fence around her when she is asleep?

      And that would have been a GREAT solution… if we had thought of it and could’ve done it without waking her…. lol.

Tell Concharty what you're thinking!....
