Lagniappe: Why I like chickens and pigs ...

It may be helpful if I preface this by saying that the author had been saying his horses' tetchiness over windy days wears him out. Though I think this works on its own too...
This is why I like chickens and pigs. In a high wind, pigs lie close together at the back of their house, snoozing, straw pulled over their heads. The chickens sit on their perches knitting and doing their accounts.
