When I first got the piglet (still haven't settled on a name), she hated me. Hated the bottle, hated anything I tried to feed her. A friend told me to mix some milk with her feed, so I did that and she ate! I was happy.
Then along came the goat kids. Pretty darn quickly, the pig figured out they were getting bottles, which must have meant she needed to eat too. She was ok with eating from her pan for a day or two...she'd run over and eat while the goats were getting their bottles.
After a day or so she decided that if the goats were getting bottles she MUST also have a bottle. Pans of feed are for dummies, or so she said. So now she is the first one in line for her bottle, but she is the last one to get one since she can't wait patiently. In fact, she launches herself at me. I'm trying to teach her that rude piggies don't get milk.
Soon she'll have to come off the bottle, I know. But it's working for now.
