“Dale doesn’t like to be on slippery concrete. He’s different than any other pig I have had. I have been showing pigs for 5 years, my family raises pigs. I have a brother and sister who also show pigs. My grandparents raised pigs so I have been around them all my life. I really like showing pigs, but Dale is just different. He is amazing in the ring but he just doesn’t like to come back out to his pen. The first day I got here, he was walking to the scale and he fell because it was wet. He kept falling and I was afraid he was going to break something. I don’t blame him for not wanting to come out of the ring because there can be water on the concrete and he will fall. Pigs are so smart that way; he knows what’s out there.
I play a lot of sports, cross country, basketball and golf. I really want to be a P.E. teacher and I would love to raise pigs on the side. My mom is a teacher and it would be good to follow in her footsteps.”
