A pig is any of the animals in the genus Sus, within the even-toed ungulate family Suidae. Pigs include the domestic pig and its ancestor, the common Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa), along with other species. Related creatures outside the genus include the peccary, the babirusa, and the warthog. Pigs, like all suids, are native to the Eurasian and African continents. Juvenile pigs are known as piglets. Pigs are highly social and intelligent animals.

Big Pig

Some people choose elegant creatures to be their favorites. My brother on the other hand has chosen this beauty. "If I had a patronus, this would be it." He says. :)

Bigs are Dogs!

I adore my pigs, no matter how massive they get. If you rub their belly they roll over...

Gloucestershire Old Spot piglets

Gloucestershire Old Spots are a type of heritage breed. They originally came from England and were called Orchard hogs because they would graze in the orchards. Pigs actually are very clean animals, contrary to what many people believe. This breed of pig is very hardy, great mothers, and raise large litters. These are three piglets that we raised here on our farm.

Mother pigs sing lullabies to their young to get them to sleep. This humanistic trait is not only endearing, but further displays the high intelligence inhabited by a pig.
