Porcina 6

Porcina 6

Rooting around.

I wanted to do a portrait of Porcina rolling around in the mud - after all, the phrase 'Happy as a pig in mud' has to come from somewhere. Sadly, she flatly refused. Those dainty hooves weren't getting covered in muck, and the sparkling coat was not getting dulled by dirt.

The best compromise we managed to come to was this. It isn't even an oak tree - no acorn fed jamon for the porcine princess, oh no. Honestly, pigs these days are so far distanced from their roots. I think she looks cute. She just complained about leaf litter, and insisted on a pedicure.
