Every night, Colton Marlin has been walking a 257-pound Yorkshire hog named Lincoln in preparation for this year’s Johnson County fair.
The 10-year-old from Greenwood is a 4-H’er for the first time this year.
Pigs are Colton’s favorite animal, and he has shown them over the past four years as a peewee, he said. A peewee shows an older 4-H’er’s animal in a showmanship competition for children too young for 4-H. This year, since he is going into fourth grade, he is finally old enough to be in 4-H.
