  1. There was a farmer there one time and he had a sow and a litter of bonhams.
    In June they missed one of the bonhams which was a young sow. They searched the place high up and low down and could not find him. In October when digging the potatoes they found a very big potato and they heard a noise inside and they cut it in two and there they found the young sow with another litter of bonhams.
