Talking Warning: NEVER keep sheep and pigs in the same field.

Something is very wrong with this.

Holy pig! That is a real breed. I thought it was photoshopped. They are Mangalitza.

LOL! Well, you learn something new every day, eh?

I haven't gotten far enough into the Wiki article yet to find out, but hope that those are hair pigs and not wool pigs!

Someone is selling these in Vacaville, CA. Very cute, but very expensive.

I just got to thinking-a friend of mine has a zebu bull in w/her horses, and he's in love w/the one mare-a haflinger. Wonder what a cross between the 2 of them would look like.

I thought the thread was for real. But when I saw the picture I snorted water through my nose laughing so hard. Then had a coughing fit from laughing at the comments. Man, you guys crack me up!!!

I've recently learned about these. Someone in our area had them on Craigslist for about $1100.00 each. Unless I can be wearing a pig wool sweater while eating a pork roast or bacon I think I'll pass

I can't believe someone hasn't blamed this on Monsanto yet.
