Vintage Show Pig Raglan
Did you know the pig is considered to be the smartest of all farm animals. It’s hard to believe they are smarter than horses. You can do a lot of things with a pig. For starters, you can raise them as a pet and even potty train them. You can raise them to eat…bacon is my favorite, and you can even raise them to show. Pig showing is serious business. There is an art form to showing a pig in the show ring. If you don’t believe me just watch a pig show!
Pigs also come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and finding the right show pig takes a lot of work and money, sometimes hundreds and more.
I absolutely love this t-shirt! It is so cute. I wanted a vintage look and feel. Show season usually starts in early fall and goes through early spring. We have shown livestock in the rain, snow, sleet, and extreme heat. None of these conditions are fun to be in but as long as we are doing something as a family, we have no complaints. It is a blessing to be able to show and there is a lot of expense involved. “We use to have money, but now we have show pigs.”
As a rural girl, I was involved in the 4-h club and later in the FFA. I think it should be a requirement for everyone to participate in these wonderful organizations. I understand that wouldn’t be realistic but at least it sounded good. Some of my most fond childhood memories were made by showing livestock or baking cookies.
