pig First a little history from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] :
The domestic pig originates from the Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa).
Clear evidence was obtained for domestication to have occurred independently from wild boar subspecies in Europe and Asia.
The time since divergence of the ancestral forms was estimated at approximately 500,000 years, well before domestication approximately 9,000 years ago.


pig My experience with tame pigs :
Pigs like to roll in mud, which has given them the reputation of being unclean animals.
Nothing could be further from the truth ! They actually take a bath in the mud .
If given the space for it, pigs will make a "WC" in the corner of their sty.
Pigs are very intelligent, - they are actually more intelligent than dogs are !

pig And now to the models cheers

Please let me kick off this topic with pictures of the pigs from Bullyland Very Happy

I don't have a single domestic pig, not even pot-bellied ones. Though, I have to mention how wonderful is your presentation! cheers I also love that you introduced it with a very rich exposition of what Bullyland made during all these years when referring to this particular animal. pig Very Happy

OK, it's far from being the only pig I have at home (I have much more than that, actually), but this one is the only one I took a picture of: my Toy Major Sow.
