So today I took a road trip for work. They sent me to pick up 2 pigs. Two ugly freaken pigs!
they are "Wolly Pigs". Damn thing looks like a sheep was raped by a pig. They are cllose to wild pigs but are WAY tamer then the domesticated we have. Ill post a pic when I get over there tomorrow. They're not as ugly as the ones I see online.....yet....

don't think so....
So...pigs have a stink that is unlike anything else. It permeates and is really hard to get rid of. At the end of my 4 hrs with them....i couldn't smell them hardly at all :weedpoke:

Something....is just wrong with that....

their meat is sought after for it's marbling.
They grow extra slow and the flesh is highly marbled.

thats one ugly damn pig! lol just doesn't look right. Although I wonder if the hair would help them in the winter. You are right about the smell tho, they are pretty stinky. Thank god it isn't as stong as a billy goat. Don't get me wrong, I think they smell worse, but pound for pound our Billy has a far stronger odor then the pigs.
