Pig Overcomes Mud Phobia with Cute Little Boots!

Debbie and Andrew Keeble noticed something strange about a newborn piglet on their farm: it's scared of the mud!

So the couple put boots on the pig, now named Cinders after Cinderella (glass slipper... rubber boots, get it?) and the little swine is now as happy as, well, a pig in the mud!

Yes they are cute fotos, but it is just publicity for their sausage company!

"The couple, who run the award-winning Debbie and Andrew's sausage company in Thirsk, North Yorkshire"

"They are using her to front a campaign to give a better deal to pig farmers."

It was very lucky that "they remembered the four miniature wellies used as pen and pencil holders in their office.", as they make much better fotos than plastic bags.

I particularly like their "get out clause" in case the gullible reporters return at a later date...

'Hopefully she will grow out of her phobia of mud before she needs a new set of boots.'
