Rare Breed Pigs, Nose To Toes

Black pig sleeping on straw

Posting a picture always involves looking at it anew, so now I’m confident that though this black pig seems to be asleep, she’s more alert than she appears. She’s got that Sunday feeling: she’s feigning sleep so as not to be bothered.

I have a lot of admiration for the ear that gives her away. It’s got a sci-fi character, it’s streamlined, and it looks perfectly designed for its primary function.

It is hard to place her expression. The eye does not match the smile (if smile is the right word). Assigned a sneer by nature, she has to thank her lucky stars she is not a princess transformed by a spell (we can be sure of that because a princess could not tolerate straw in her ear). And she’s a patient type as she does tolerate a trotter on her nose.

I’d say she’s kind of cute. What do you think?

  1. I’ve always kind of liked pigs though my uncle raised pigs on his farm and I’ve seen my fair share of not nice things about pigs. Still, I defer to my feelings about Wilbur, the Charlotte’s Web pig who was cute and smart and loveable. Also Piglet, of Winnie the Pooh fame.
