Morning Visitors

As I was heading out to feed the pigs this morning, I was instead greeted by a sounder of piglets at the back fence sniffing around for a pre-breakfast snack.
Ozark - a true lover of all things porcine, especially those in miniature - soon led the somewhat confused "herding" back to their mothers, who were awaiting with snorts of concern.
All of this reminds me of a fellow farmer friend's favorite quotation regarding such incidents, accidents, and their aftermaths:

"The Pig: mogul of appetite, lord of misrule, the king who must die."
- John Thorne, Serious Pig (2000)
