Squishey Toes? NO WAY says Cinders

HAPPY AS A PIG IN MUD!!!
I DON'T THINK SO!!!!


Cinders the piglet has been given boots to wear because she does not like the mud.
The piglet's owners, Debbie and Andrew Keeble from Thirsk in North Yorkshire, were baffled by her behaviour when she and her siblings were let out into the fields.
While the rest ventured away from their mother, Cinders appeared to suffer from mysophobia, or a fear of mud, and just stood at the edge of her sty shaking.
After a little head scratching, the couple's 12-year-old daughter Ellie suggested kitting the six-week-old saddleback out in tiny footwear.
They asked a designer friend to come up with a bespoke pair of green piggy boots.
Cinders took to her trotterwear so well that she has been recruited to act as a mascot in the campaign to highlight the plight of British pig farmers.
So it seems Cinders' precious nature has saved her from the slaughter house.
