    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!

    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.
