4/2/2004: Beauty the diving pig



This is the same diving act that started our Friday animal happiness, I think; and IotD has already repeated it once, but it appears to be an annual event. So here she is; her name is Beauty, and she's about 1 and a half years old. She prepares for her leap...



...and she flies through the air... off the three-meter platform...



...and she's made her big splash, and she's done her job at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Happy Friday.

this is one of jinx's favorite paintings. I wonder if there's a connection?

That's not foam. She's storing oxygen for the dive.

I went to the Easter Show on Friday it was fantastic !

i bet on the number 4 pig (in the pig races) and came out with an extra $10 dollars in my pocket!!

I saw two diving pigs that day, Beauty, and the bigger older, miss piggy (who wore a skirt round her hind 1/4s!! cute!! .

its the cutest thing to see and they were very well trained!!


oink!!

I'm such a moron. I've been reading this thread all along as Beauty the Divine Pig.

I think I have trouble with bolding
