…You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again. - Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Given the opportunity, pigs quite enjoy building nests.
Here’s WINONA setting up to lose her fleece… but let the inspectors have a close look before allowing her to pass.
Heritage bred pigs are notable in several ways. True heritage bred pigs LOOK DIFFERENT when compared to their commercial & hybrid counterparts. This unique look is also uniform in type. An Old Spot pig looks like An Old Spot pig… but it doesn’t quite look like any other pig!
Secondly (and a little known fact) heritage pigs are REALLY BIG on recycling! Smart farmers of yesteryear bred pigs that would become unique recyclers of niche market resources, thus converting would-be-waste into nutrient-rich protein. The Old Spot pig, for example, was developed on the refuse of Old English orchards and dairy farms.
