    Default Mud phobia pig gets its own boots

    This is SO cool XD

    Six-week-old Cinders appears to suffer from mysophobia, a fear of dirt, after refusing to join her siblings as they splashed around in the mud.

    Owner Andrew Keeble from Thirsk, North Yorks, said his daughter Ellie, 12, suggested kitting her out in the tiny footwear which had been on a key ring.

    "Lo and behold they fitted her like a glove," Mr Keeble said.

    "She's scared of mud, but her brothers and sisters are quite happy in it.

    "We've never come across this before. They are born really to go and explore, but she never really liked going in the mud."

    Mr Keeble and wife Debbie, both 42, run a sausage company and keep about 200 pigs on their 1,000-acre farm.

    But the father-of-four said there was no chance that Cinders would be slaughtered.

    "She's more of a pet really now and she's going to live a very long and happy life," he said.

    The young saddleback has been chosen by the couple as a mascot for their campaign to raise money for the Farm Crisis Network, which supports struggling farmers.

    It's photoshopped right? The rear boot looks fake, this is probably fake isn't it?
