Pig in a Ring

Joining with Madge's Rural Blog Hop.  A truly rural event is a small-town stock show, complete with 4-H and FFA kids and animals, rodeo and horse racing, concession booth with fabulous hamburgers, and a carnival.  As a 4-H youngster in the 50's, I showed sheep and cattle here, but I hardly recognized the place.  One of my great-nieces, 10-year-old Kaelin, showed her pig, "Porky," in his conformation class.

Ten pigs in the ring started with chaos but calmed down eventually

That looks like my kind of way to spend the day and Porky is one good looking pig! :)
