This weekend I got to spend some time with the pigs.  Mangalitsa pigs, I found, are inquisitive but not pushy, friendly but not as aggressively so as pigs we’ve had before.  They had “landmines” around, but not craters–they can dig but aren’t as destructive as other breeds. I got some great photos:

This is a bit of wooly pig hair–looks like regular locks rather than bristles!
