And really rather nice ones, too.

Pigs

I've never been big on pigs, not since, as a kid, I was chased across a farm yard and trapped in a shippen by an irate sow. I guess she had justification, I was helping remove her piglets' potential manhood at the time! You soon learn just how fast you really can run when you watch an angry sow break the gate of her stall clean off its hinges and charge you. Have you ever noticed when something like that happens you always remember it in slow motion like a cliched action movie?

I think the pink one is a lop eared and the spotty one is an Oxford sandy and black. If you want to check my identification on Google and if you are sure I'm right then hone the identification.
