On the farm (4) : Domestic Pig

On the same farm where I photographed the Brown Goat and the Toulouse Goose (see pictures below), I spotted this time ‘miss Piggy’ while taken a lazy afternoon siesta.

Not the most beautiful animal in the world, I know, but is each animal not worthwhile seeing ?

Dutch name : Tam Varken
German name : Hausschwein
Latin name : Sus scrofa domesticus

    Beim Anblick des genüsslichen und zufriedenen Ausdrucks dieses satten Schweins kann man sich ein Lächeln nicht verkneifen!

    I like pigs...they can look cute too with their muzzle and they are supposed to be intelligent animals.
    When looking at your picture I regret all the "Schnitzel" and bacons I've eaten in my life...problem only is...it tastes so good...blame on me...

    Herrlich zufrieden, wirkt dieses SChwein - es ist auch ein ausgesprochen glückliches Schwein - mit Auslauf und viel Grün!!!! Das merkt man später auch am leckeren Braten, wenn die Aufzucht so natürlich ist...

    LG!

    A very photogenic oynker with his closed eye and little smile snoozing away. A very nice capture with all those little hairs glistening in the sun and the grass as his resting place.
    greetings, Adele

    Sì, hai ragione ,non sarà il massimo della bellezza,però anche "miss Piggy" ,ha il suo benemerito posto tra i nostri animali domestici.

  • s. sabine krause 09/29/2010 10:22

    yes, definitely! and she deserves to be in your "gallery of intelligent animals": goat, goose, and pig – a very smart collection indeed ; ))! love the look of her hairy back and blissful "smile" on her oinky snout ; ))! and the two different greens in the meadow – dark and shady vs. sunlit and bright – are beautiful, too! farmyard leisure – a very charming shot! lg, sabine.
