Cutters believe that “cow sense” is bred into their horses through generations of selective breeding. What then are we to make of Squeaky (Johnny Hanson photo), a feral hog that helps round up cattle on Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan’s ranch south of Houston?
China Grove Ranch manager Mike Veara found the spotted orphan in a back pasture two years ago and gave the piglet to his grandson to raise. Without prompting, Squeaky took to ranching as if he was born to it. It might be said that he saved his bacon by bringing home the beef, except for the fact that he prefers his pizza with pepperoni.
