We hopped in the car and headed out to do a little pig shopping one day not so long ago. Window shopping, you might call it, whereby you hone in on the specifics of what you want but plan to pull out your wallet on a different day.
Hone in we did, all right. On our list of pig must-haves: floppy ears, the kind which must be physically held back to reveal the pig eyes lurking beneath. Lard. An insatiable hunger for grass and food that is green. A preference for an outdoor lifestyle. An easy-going, docile attitude. (must like kids) Black body color, most likely.
There are not yet pigs on Five Green Acres, but Folks – it’s just a matter of time.
