NO GUINEA PIGS WERE HARMED!!!
We have been letting the pigs out in a pen in the shady spots of the yard to graze. They love it. Today we where letting the baby ducks swim in a tote of water and one of the boys was playing near by with the pigs. We had seen a video years ago about swimming guinea pigs, and they asked me if they could let the pigs try to swim. I very carefully held my hands around the pigs and let them try one at a time. I was so careful with them. You know I love these little guys and would not hurt them. They swam like them were pros! Later that same day we decided to let them try again in the tub.
I promise we will not make them do this very often, but it was just so fun and cute.
