I bet they are having a blast. Pigs are very smart, sensitive, and enjoy getting out and doing social things. In fact I know they are having a great time... it is awesome to see them having so much fun when so few get to.

hey no fair..my Dad lied to me (this is also applicable to the "lies your parents told you" thread). We have potbellied pigs, and I wanted to see if they could swim but my Dad told me they couldn't swim, cos they would cut their throats with their front hooves. (are they called hooves? I know they're not paws!) next time i'm home i'm gonna throw them in the pond and see for myself

Pigs enjoy swimming a great deal if let do it themselves... they will fear it if thrown in the first time.

I was only slightly serious about throwing them in - they weigh far too much for me to lift them! When we got them they were smaller than the pigs in the photos above, now (7 months later) they are at least 10 times bigger. its amazing how fast they grow.And they never stop eating. Once I found them asleep in the shed where we keep meal for cows. They had broken in earlier on and had obviously eventually passed out from sheer exhaustion- they were fit to burst!! I wish I had taken a photo....sorry I'm rambling, I tend to do that about them to everyone who will listen, but I love them so

Decieving me with the title again UT. When you said pig olympics, I thought I would see some French people competing.

Either this is simultaneously incredibly cute and more that a little surreal, or the Vicodin has finally begun to kick in.

The ravenous pigs scene is really downplayed in the movie version of Hannibal.
