Now here's a subject I never thought I'd learn about when I embarked on my family history adventure. The subject of hogs. More specifically, how and why my farmer ancestors put rings in the noses of their hogs. Nose rings were used to keep the hogs from rooting up crops. The tool above (complete with box of nose rings) was used to place said rings in the porcine's nose.

The things I've discovered.
