FOWC with Fandango: Limit

HESO 30.09 (1)

A photo taken at our local trade fair, nothing special but wait, in the background there is a pig and he even has a marking painted on his back. If you look closer you seen another four pigs. The people at the front are having an intensive discussion, about the limits of pigs most probably.

These pigs will soon be pushed to their limits. They are racing pigs. Daily at the fair the office opens and you can place your bet on who the winner will be. To be quite honest whether they are trained for racing or not I do not know. I was at the fair when the pigs were racing. I could hear the commentator through the loudspeaker and the people were clapping and  cheering for their pig, the pig they chose to win. Of course it was all for fun, an attraction at the fair.

I managed this picture as there was no action at the time and at last I got a peek at he pigs in the background. Otherwise I could see nothing as I am in a wheelchair and I had to stay at the edge as the action took place below and there were many spectators blocking the view.

The fair finished yesterday, but somewhere in a farmhouse there is a pig in his stall dreaming of the day when he won the race. He might even have a badge on the wall with his photo. Even pigs have their dreams. Perhaps pigs can fly like the one on the photo.

    • I wish I could have got nearer and seen it happen. There were seats provided, but I could not reach them in my wheelchair. I know how it works with greyhounds, but not with pigs.
