Piglet Races, Deni Ute Muster

Each piglet is identified by the colour of his saddle cloth.

Styled in the fashion of the Ascot Races, the trumpets blast and the crowd roars and they are off. The run and the pen are built of iron mesh and the piglets make their way through the first gate, with the leader able to nuzzle the latch up and the gate springs open.
