Milk Bath

Even though the pigs have made some lovely mud wallows for cooling off on a summer’s day, this girl chose a dunk right in the drink trough.  This pig weighs in the high 300 pound range so she displaces a lot of liquid,  nearly causing it to overflow.  Today’s drink menu includes sour milk curds and whey. 

Remember that bit in Charlotte’s Web when they give Wilbur a scrubbing with buttermilk before going to the fair? Maybe this pig knows something about milk baths.  Or maybe it was just a convenient place to plop down.
