Oh. I thought it meant they don't rent out male pigs to "service" other people's sows. Like farmers do with prize bulls.

Perhaps they've been pestered by Rent-a-Pig salesmen...hmm

The real question here is............

Is the property for rent made of straw, sticks or bricks?

Apparently it's a quote from Lonesome Dove, referring to animals not allowed in their rental prooerty, but it could mean everything except pigs allowed here grin

Are you sure they have not left out the word 'to'?

We'd like to know what set of circumstances led up to the design and installation of this sign. We don't rent pigs
