Roxie gets kissed

The pigs have calmed down considerably, probably because they know I bring them food.  They're eating a lot now.  The campers gave us a bucket of their compost and the pigs are thrilled with it. 

Roxie was a very popular pig this evening.  We took her to Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground for the pig kissing contest.  While we waited for her turn to take the stage we kept her in a cage in the back of the station wagon with the hatch open.  Kids gathered around to see her and she seemed to like them.  She came to the front of the cage so they could touch her nose.
Margie, the owner of the campground was the winner (or loser, depending on how you look at it) and got to/had to kiss Roxie. 

All went well and Roxie behaved.  I had this picture of her getting out of my arms and running loose while people screamed or chased her, which would have made for a better video.  We made our exit and Roxie was glad to be returned to her stall with Velma.  I gave them some treats of cabbage and banana peels.  Yummm.
