Not a great image, but this little piggy was cute standing next to her mother. Our neighbor down the road raises pigs--out in the fields, not in an enclosed barn.

Fun image to see when it opens up especially since it's a total departure from your norm. My first thoughts were- oink, oink. LOL. I see big momma has a nose ring too.
