13 little piglets
I think we can agree that there is a certain cuteness when it comes to all baby animals.
Oh but these 13 little piglets were so adorable I almost stole one and took it home.
They were so tiny. They were so soft.
I went to lean over to touch one but my stomach got in the way.
I stuck my hand thru the bottom slat and ran it down the back of this tiny pink piglet.
It was like touching silk. The little piglet actually turned and back up against my hand to be pet some more. Then it sat it's little butt down and leaned it. So completely like a dog wanting to be pet, it just cracked me up.
Look at this sleeping babe.
Then I got berated by the piglet keeper. Don't touch the piglets!
In my defense I made sure to read all the signs before touching. On the inside of the pin it said not to pick the piglets up and on the outside it said to wash your hands after touching animals.
Apparently these little ones are only 4 days old! In a few weeks people will be able to pet them.
It was so worth it. Watching these piglets run around and pile on top of each other and rub against the poles was just too adorable.
I love the markings on this one. Nice pants!
Tell me you don't want to climb in there with them.
That poor mama. 13 at a time. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
Head over to the Orange County Fair if you'd like to visit them in Centennial Farm!
Anyone have a piglet they want to give me?
