One jug of moonshine = $30.
A pig who has learned to fetch a jug of moonshine….... priceless!

The hillbilly is a roughout I got from Allen Goodman, but it didn’t have a picture or drawing to go with it, so I just kinda guessed how it should go. I liked the looks of him, but he seemed a little lonely, so I started adding a few things and this is where it ended up! Woooooooooooo Pig sooooie!

For some reason this reminds me of the very first episode of the Beverly Hillbillies. Jed comes in and says… “Granny, looks like dem hawgs got in the corn agin.” Granny said, “How much they drink?”

Nice carving!

I like how you have created this little vignette. The hillybilly looks deep in contemplation carefully studying his pigs find.
