Mother and Piglets
Very sexy! Oh, now that’s a beautiful one. “I don’t know, I’ve never taken one out,” jokes Frank!
It’s a pig. It’s a big pig. “That’s what I thought,” says Roberta. There’s lovely piglets all around. Too many piglets! Six piglets are counted.
It’s a mother—a mummy pig. “It’s called a sue,” says Sandra, looking at Sue! “Oh, I mean a sow! The Scottish pronounce it sue!”
Roberta says it would take a while to feed the piglets. The pig’s name is Mother Pig. There is no evil eye for the pig. That will keep her safe!
Mother Pig is not happy. She is tired! Just wait until you have a family! But that’s another story.
They’re on a farm. Frank hopes so! The weather is calm and the pigs are just outside in the paddock. Mother Pig is crying because she is so tired. Poor thing. You can see her mouth is open and all the little pigs around her. One of the pigs looks like a dog.
We are sure there are other animals on the farm, but we’re not sure what they are. There is a smell of manure from the cows—not the pigs. We can hear the pig singing. Gigika. Actually, it’s Maria who is singing a song for the pig!
