These little piggies

Our pigs were only for food, not pets, at least that's what mom said when she told us not to name them. Naturally, being farm kids we had an odd sense of humor and the first two pigs we got were named Ham and Bacon.
They were quite pushy when you first went into their pen but quickly ignored you if they had food to keep them busy.
They did turn their outdoor space into a mud pit but whenever I cleaned and filled the water trough they loved to get under the spray of clean water.
The smell was a bit much for me but they sure did taste good.
As mom said, not pets.
