Do they do this in England anymore?

One of the traditions in Spain is to bless the animals on or near to the day of San Anton.

Father Aurelio Ferrandiz gives his blessing. One of the two pigs, clearly nonplussed by it all

This man brought his goat. There were also a couple of horses ready to be blessed.

As part of the proceedings they held a raffle for a couple of pigs. We were careful not to buy tickets, the last thing we need is a pig!
