Playing with the baby pigs was a normal part of my childhood on the farm. Mom's specialty was helping birth and care for them during their first few weeks, and she trained me to assist in delivery and beyond. I think that just like me, those little guys were happiest when they were allowed free range on their own generous patch of green.
Has your family visited a farm lately? It's still one of our favorite outings as a family event, and also as a topic for features stories here on the blog.
