Now that Kelsie has officially graduated from high school and Kaleb is finishing his classes soon, the real fun begins. These 4-H'ers will now begin to train their pigs how to walk while being guided in the direction the kids want them to go. It doesn't sound that complicated, but trying to get an animal that is not harnessed to walk a specific route is no small task. Kaleb and Kelsie use a small fenced in arena to first familiarize their pigs with the direction guiding process but they also take them for walks around the yard and back the grass lane for real exercise and muscle building.
More to come on how exactly you get a pig to turn right and left, stay tuned.
