Oiiiiink !

Pig feeding Queen's Hamlet VersaillesNow... er... VDP is no pig expert and so can't tell you what breed these beauties are. Anyone out there?


VDP ne s'y connaît pas vraiment en espèces de cochon et ne peut donc pas vous dire ce que sont ces beaux spécimens. Vous savez, vous ?

A little while back, Sharon in Phoenix, Arizona, featured this goose's cousin munching away! Check out the cousin here!

Il y a quelques temps, Sharon à Phoenix dans l'Arizona nous montrait la cousine (ou le cousin) de cette oie (ou de ce jars) avec pratiquement la même pose ! Sa photo est par ici !Goose Queen's Hamlet Versailles

Gotta love pigs, just look at those faces. They look very content and well fed :)

The goose head is magnificent! No clue on the pig.

William Kendall said...

Whatever breed they are, they're huge!

Lois said...

Awww….those pigs are so cute! Love the closeup of the goose too.

Randy said...

Fuzzy little pig.

I have never before seen a pig wearing cammo or stripes. I'm a city boy. My knowledge of pigs comes from menus.

No idea about the breed of the pig. He looks like a hungry fellow!

I think the breed is known as BIG pig!

Fun portraits of these guys and gals, Ciel.

No can help Ciel, not up on porcine types, don't eat pork either.. But these fellas sure look well fed and healthy, 10 out of ten oinks to the breeders :)

I'd say they would make a few gallons of lard which was prized back in the day.

Diese sind aber große Schweine !
Ich bevorzuge die Gänse :)

Sharon Anck said...

I can't say what kind of pig that is but I do like his turned up nose...er....snout.
I think you are correct about the goose, they must be related, they have the same eyes. I can't believe we took almost identical shots.

i think pigs are so cute and look at his smile!!

Birdman said...

Love your oinkers today and the that goose portrait.

VP said...

Sorry, I only eat them...

Stefan Jansson said...

Nice pet. It's a big one, that's for sure.

RedPat said...

Big pigs, Ciel! I have no idea what they are.

Jack said...

How rural of you, Ciel! You have always been so urbane.

Dina said...

Oi (or oink), I'm glad you balanced the ugliness of those pigs with the beauty of the geese.
