Run, piggy run!
And this Saturday night, some of the fastest porkers in the west will be donning their little running vests in readiness for north Pembrokeshire indoor pig racing event in Canolfan Hermon.
According to an email sent to The Pembrokeshire Herald, the piggy sprinters have all been suitably bred for racing and each has an individual vet who will ensure that their pedigrees are suitable for the track. It is understood that many of the thoroughbred pigs who will be running on Saturday recently took part in the national pig races at Cheltenham.
The event is a joint fund-raising venture for Whitland Ladies Rugby and Hermon Ladies Tug-of-War.
It is believed that the pigs will be racing in an hour-long event, running the course five times for a total distance of around 30 metres, or 33 yards.
And our email correspondent has assured us that the racing floor will be covered with a plastic, straw-covered sheet to avoid any leakages, however race-goers are invited to bring their own shovels and plastic bags to help themselves to some garden manure at the end of the event.
But then again, maybe the pigs will be wooden!
The races commence at 7.30pm and pigs can be bought for £20
