Danielle Salinas and Angel Mendez won big with a pig named Lucky.
Salinas, 23, and her fiance, Orlando Mendez, 22, both of Bloomington, snapped the winning photo for the Victoria Livestock Show Twitter photo contest. Salinas tweeted the photo of Angel, 16, when he won breed grand champion with his heavyweight Duroc, Lucky.
"It was pretty exciting," Salinas said. "When it happened, it was an amazing feeling to know he did all that work to win (breed) grand champion."
Salinas, who goes to the stock show every year, said this is Angel's third year showing in the stock show and his first year to win breed grand champion.
For submitting the winning photo, she wins four tickets to Cinemark Theatre in Victoria.
