That'll teach me. Having sounded off about how great everything is. . . we had a drama.
Spike got out again and made a B-line (bee-line?) for the pig shed where he got in and spent a couple of minutes chasing Eric and Ernie around.
Dave the cycle repair man, who was doing some plumbing work for me, got him out and nobody seemed any the worse.
But when I gave the boys their tea a little later Eric was unable to put his back foot down. I tried not to panic and had a look. He was eating fine and the only damage appears to be to his trotter. Marcus is coming to have a look in the morning and I hope between us we can get the wound cleaned and treated.
