Jackson County Fair: Bucket o' Pork

Jackson County Fair: Bucket o' Pork
There are lots of cute farm animals to visit and take pictures of at the fair! I always find myself laughing at the funny situations I discover while visiting each barn. This pig has decided that the perfect place to sleep is inside its feed bucket! Judging by its expression, a feed bucket is blissfully comfortable! :D

This is an American Yorkshire pig, the most common breed in the United States. Pigs are raised for their meat and this breed is popular for its high proportion of lean meat. The American Yorkshire was developed in Yorkshire, England in 1761 and imported to the United States in 1830, but did not become popular until the late 1940's when their growth rate was improved.

If you would like to know more about these cute pigs, Wiki has a page here: Wiki: American Yorkshire

By the way, I've uploaded two other pictures today and I hope you'll visit them too!

Thanks to all of you who have visited and have left comments and favorites! I try to go to all of your pages within a day or two and is a highlight for me to see your beautiful photography! :)
