|Hernando High School student Nicole Badger, 17, snuggles one last time Thursday with Snow, the pig she fed, groomed and fussed over for 105 days. "I called her my baby because I loved her so much," Badger said. Snow, 220 pounds, was auctioned Wednesday during the Hernando County Youth Fair and Livestock Show in Brooksville. Youths said goodbye to their animals, which are ultimately bound for the dinner table.
