Animal Odd Couples: The Little Pig and its protective cows
From Bellview community of Edmonton, Metcalfe County, KY
Discussing the case of Shirley Jones' missing adorable donkey this morning at breakfast, and the fact that the donkey would be missing her soul-mate, a cow, reminded Mrs. Marcum of a neighbor pig at Bellview in Metcalfe County.
"There was a little pig at Uncle Trib's place which was afraid of everything. Every time it would hear a loud noise or see something unusual, even me when I was just a small child, coming in to pasture, it would run under one of the cows bellies, and peer out with a funny look, almost daring anyone to come after her when she was in the protection of that cow. I believe that the little pig preferred the cows to its own mother," Geniece Marcum, my favorite mother-in-law, remembers.
"Uncle Trib" was Trib Leftwich, who owned the farm on the Glasgow Road where Bowling Park is now located. - EW
