Talking about pigs
[Return to Topics]

All this talk down below about pigs puts me in mine of a pig I used to have. She was one of them Vietnamese pot belly pigs. My pardner, Jake's girl friend, Naughty Finger LaRue bottle raised her so she was a real pet. She'd never been around other pigs and her best buddy was a white dog everybody called "Blacky." Yup old Blacky and Gertrude went every place together. The boys would saddle up and go work stock and them two would tag along. It was kinda a habit that at the end of the day we'd sit around the porch drink a beer or two and tell a story or two. Well pretty soon somebody starting giving Gertrude a sip now and then and before we know she got her own bottle every evening. I'd go over to Sam's Bar and old gertrude and Blacky come too. Balcky in the back and Gertrude would always ride the right seat and of course she'd get a beer too.. Well after a time I got a bill from Sam for $67. He said she'd stop in about 4:30 or so nearly every day. I put a stop to that. I got one of them home beer bars that holds a quarter keg and rigged up a little foot pedal for her. She was quite the Pig. Old Blacky always prefered Nehi orange.

During cold weather, i got into the habit of pulling on a pair of waders before reading the stuff in here. Now that it's warmer, i just wear shorts & arrive barefoot - i figure heck, i'm the most washable thing i have, and i'd hate to be the only one sitting here typing in waders.

Reading about your talented potbelly makes me wonder if Beethoven raised pigs - while she was hammering those keys, did Gertrude ever theorize about what happened to his Fifth? lol

Carp our pig truly enjoyed classical music and the only time I could get her to watch TV was when RIVER DANCE was on. She would watch our oldest daughter play fiddel and switch her tail to the tune too. I think that she liked BLUEGRASS the best, Classical second and New Country turd.
She died last year in May or I would ask more. If I had email add I would send pic.

Few years ago we went to Indiana to visit inlaws. My step daughter decided I needed a white pig. ( I raise hamp's). Any way when I got ready to come home she had one of those little pet carriers with somebody's feeder pig. I hauled the little sucker home but was if I turned it in with my pigs I fegured they'd kill it so I turned it loose in the yard. It kind of bonded with the dogs and started chasing cars. Got real friendly (pet). Wife found a little saddle for it and got it haulter broke. We was going to train it for the grandkids to ride but before it got too big a horse stepped on it while it was sleeping in the barn. You get one of this little guys by himself you can teach them to do most anything. However, a herd of pigs are only good for teaching you to cuss.

Kraig Hogs are rated as one of the brainest animals next to Man and I've often wondered which side tha "next to" was on.

I always said if ever I went for a PHD in sicology I'd write My theses on Hogs.

Sorry!! I usually do. It's I'm probably getting misty eyed about old Gertrude. We had her for 12 years. She turned into a pretty good cow pig. We use to work them Caney River bottoms. It was so thick you couldn't go in there horseback. Old Gertrude and Blackly get them ol wild cows out in no time. We tried to ween her off to non-alcoholic beer but she'd bit you if she saw the label.....and that's the gospel truth, EIEIO.

Hang in thar Cousin Gimp 12 years is a long time of gather'un lovin memories. Ya failed ta mention Her readin ability,thats what happens when Ya go edjecatin females, mighta peeled off tha stickers afor she seed'em.

I have a hog tale thats a true one and a real tear jerker,might relate it somtime when I'm a little less suceptable ta runny eyeballs.

Hogman our pig never learned did learn to read very well but she knew what people where sayin and could give you a lot of back talk. I am not fooling either. If you give me an EAdd I'll send you a picture, and a good story too. Just ask Mr. McFagon.

Well Hogman, we tried to peel them stickers but she wouldn't drink it if it was in a can or if the sticker was missing. I am sure everybody on this site would like to hear your pig story, I know I would. And your right, once again, about educating females of any kind. Hope them sawbones are treating you a little better.

Now is this a true story or are you pushing that little foot pedal on the keg while writing this? You know I believe pert near everything written here. Maybe that is why Dennis just shakes his head when I tell him something I read on this site that amazes me. Just wait til I am not a Greenhorn anymore and I'll still spinning me a tale or two.

F14...Now, EI(etc)    Posted 06-23-2002 at 14:18:14       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yer pert near new here, so I'm gonna give ya a little slack, and some free advice.

While it IS possible that there may be one or two people here who occasionally interpret the truth a tad more liberally than is the generally accepted standard, I can tell ya from personal experience, that Gimpleg ain't one of 'em. Why, butter wouldn't melt in that boy's mouth. Every word he ever uttered is the simple, unadorned, gospel truth.

And that goes for Jake, Formerly Etc., Grove r, Clem, and as far as I know, DeadCarp.

Me, on the other hand, my Daddy was a used car salesman and my step-mom is a carpetbagging senator from a Large Northeastern State, and I subcontract to Arthur Anderson giving financial advice to Martha Stewart...

F14...Well, Gee, Bob    Posted 06-23-2002 at 14:37:07       [Reply]  [No Email]
I'd like to, I really would. Problem is, it involves random numbers, Ouija boards, astrology and Miss Cleo, and I'd get kicked plumb outta the Lodge if I divulged any of the details.

A man's ward is his bond, that sorta thing, ya know?

Hogman** SAY NOW MIZ McDONS FARM    Posted 06-23-2002 at 15:10:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
Thats an insinuation as is down right shamful ta make! How dast Ya question tha factuality of one of such astute integrety as tha rite Rev Gimp?????

Aside from that statement of supreme truth, many a Pot Belly pig has been turned into a Beercahaulic by fun lovin misguided Miscreants!

And F14 We got a Lady(?) in this State as We'd swap for a three laiged mule with tha heaves and bad fistalue.
