Hello! I just traded some meat rabbits for two red Tamsworth pigs about 50-60 pounds each...gilts. I will keep them for sows. They are red with pointed ears like they are supposed to be. However, their long tails are never curled, but always stay straight. They have been wormed, are fed like kings, and frolic all the time. Their tails are always wagging like a happy dog. My neighbor told me the pigs are not well because they don't curl their tails up. He insisted that a healthy pig has a curled tail. I have raised other pigs in the past and acknowledge the curly tail was always there. However, could the straight tails on these two Tamsworths be a breed trait or is the neighbor right?
