I was born one cold winter night on a Texas Farm. The cold winter snow was so deep the farmer had to shovel his way to the barn to check on his animals.
The farmer was putting straw in our pen to keep us warm. "Oh! My", said the farmer. "The mother pig has a nest of new babies." He kept putting straw in our nest making sure mother and her babies would keep warm during the night.
Suddenly the farmer picked me up and put me in his warm pocket. I felt so warm. I was still in that warm pocket when the farmer took off his coat hanging it up.
I was very hungry and I began to cry, then I was wrapped in a very warm blanket and I was being fed by a little bottle.
The warm milk tasted so good as I snuggle close in the arms of a little girl.
"I will keep you warm" she said smiling at me. I smiled back.
"You must go to sleep now, you are so tiny and pink with cute curly tail, the warm milk will help you grow some hair so you will be warm" as she kissed me on the head.
