Not My Piggies
Saint Anthony of Padua, whose feast day is June 13th, is the patron saint of Sibulan, Negros Oriental. The feast day is the biggest event in the Sibulan calendar (with the exceptions of Christmas and Holy Week). Just like last year - and countless years before - the people in the town will be celebrating with lechon baboy.
Days before the feast, farmers will gather as close to the poblacion area as possible in order to sell pigs properly sized for roasting. The ones in this photo are not mine. This is the first pregnancy for both my swine. After this, I will attempt to time their pregnancies to allow be to have lechon size pigs ready for different festivals.
