London, June 11 : A piglet owned by a farmer couple in North Yorks, England, disproved the common notion that the hogs' life is all about bogs, when she refused to roam barefooted in mud.
Farmers Debbie and Andrew Keeble of Thirsk have revealed that the piglet called Cinders was afraid to put her feet in mud, and that is why they had to buy her rubber boots.
"She just stood at the edge shaking. If we moved her to where there was no mud, she happily roamed about," British tabloid The Sun quoted 40-year-old Debbie as saying.
Andrew, 42, added: "It's odd. But we thought, we wouldn't go in mud barefoot, so why not try wellies?"
