This week, I have been learning about pigs. These three little piggies are from Kansas. They now live at my ranch. This was Day #1 one at home. They were shy at first.
These little piggies are Colorado show pigs. They are not little. They are buff and muscular.
This snapshot taken yesterday on the first day the Colorado Junior Swine Association's Ring of Success Show. The show was held this weekend at the El Paso County Fair Grounds in Calhan, CO.
These kids had the opportunity to show their hogs in three shows over the weekend (May 28-29). The shows were also designed to help prepare the kids to show their hogs in the upcoming county and state fair season shows. The grand champion hog for each of the Ring of Sucess shows this weekend won $1,000.
I was very impressed by the dedication and showmanship that each of these kids displayed. Notice, pigs are not shown in halters. The kids have to coax them along carrying only a stick and a grooming brush.
The most unusual thing that I noticed at the show was what I didn't see. I didn't see any kids glued to their cell phones or even walking around with their phones. The only time I noticed cell phones was if they were being used to video someone showing or being used to take a picture.
