One of the highlights of my summer so far. We went to the East of England show and having done the more conventional livestock competitions for pigs, they moved on to ‘piggy pranks’, in which pig farmers competed to take their pigs round a course: wiggling in and out of cones, marching through two poles (as above), in and out of a maltese cross-shaped fence, and penned within a magic circle. It was marvellous and hilarious. The pigs shown were very lovely and clever too. I recommend it very highly to all my readers.
