The way a farmer ties a dead mother’s skin
to another mother’s body

Caroline Klocksiem

Sometimes when the mama pig dies the baby pig tries to die too but we don’t wanna let that baby pig die so we skin the dead mother pig and tie her carcass onto another mother pig who has milk and sometimes the orphan will nurse from that pig and sometimes she won’t but what else are we supposed to do here?
