If there is anything I’ve learned around here since moving back to Indiana, it’s this: sit back awhile before passing judgement. Actually, it might be best to withhold judgement all together, but it’s Indiana and we don’t judge, we just got ‘pinions. Have you ever heard those stories about pig farmers slipping into the pig pen, never, ever to be seen again? Yep, those are true. A pig will eat you whole, bones and everything, all while wagging it’s cute curly tail like a puppy. As a casual observer, I’m not sure what this native ritual of pig wrestling is all about, but you won’t catch me wrestling a pig unless I was trying to save my own damn life. So, as I’ve said before, do not try these Hoosier stunts at home (or in a pig pen alone, for goodness sakes). I’m guessing 9 times outta 10, the pig’s gonna win.
Thank you to David and Bobbie Mark for sharing their photos with us! See ya next year at the Fulton County 4H Fair!
