Pig Painting–Vindicator


8x10 Oil on Canvas

Cheri Wollenberg

My grandson is raising pigs as a project for 4-H and Stock Shows.   “Perry” his gilt pig had a litter of 13 baby pigs two months ago.  He now has less than that because a few of them died and he will be selling a few to other children as show pigs.  Vindicator, above, is a pig that he acquired after all these other pigs.  He is about a month older than the others.  He named this pig after Vindicator in the movie, “The Rare Breed” with Jimmy Stewart and Maureen O’Hara.  In the movie Vindicator was a Hereford bull that was left to a lady and her daughter by the wife’s deceased husband.  They take the bull from England to a cattle breeder in Texas.  Vindicator leaves a legacy of the Hereford, a “rare breed”.  My grandson believes Vindicator will enhance his pig herd to be a “rare breed”Smile

Vindicator is for sale in my Etsy store here.
