The Glamorous Life of a Show Pig

I am comin' atcha LIVE from the swine barn of the National Junior Summer Spectacular swine show in Louisville, KY.

As I mentioned in my last post, we are here with our Yorkshire gilts (females) who both happen to be named Holly.

I thought I would share a few photos that show what life at the hog show is like.

Don't worry. Holly is just sleeping in this picture. She is stretched out, enjoying the air conditioned barn and fresh, soft shavings in her pen.


She enjoys a special mix of feed that includes oats, powdered milk and specially created pellets for show pigs.



When it comes time to show, Husband and Justin gave Holly an extra drink of cold water and then brushed her off.


After the show, both Hollys (and this one) couldn't wait to take a nice long rest.
