Yorkshire pigs wallow in mud at the Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville, Maryland

“Upon a sow-swine, whose farrows were nine. Old Baubo rideth alone. “

–Translation of Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s Faust by Percy Bysshe Shelley

I often think of my main character as Baubo and I need to separate her from her banter buddy, for the next chapter. She may go solo to her next destination, so young Baubo may ride alone.

I chose the picture because Baubo has links to sows and the pig in the back appears to be riding piggyback on the other pig. Some can’t pass up pig on pig action.

There was a picture of Baubo on a sow on the website for Austria’s Vagina Museum, but it didn’t appear to be under the creative common license. Here’s the link for the Baubo riding the sow if anyone is interested:
