Black Family

Family of black pigs, that is. 

 Gansu, 2007

Have you ever seen black pigs or swine?

Linked with Photo Hunter where the theme is mostly black and with Camera Critters.

Black pigs? Is this common?

EG Wow said...

Yes, I have. :) These look cleaner than the ones I've seen, though. :)

My mom have lots of those. Happy PH!

I've only seen them as pets or in a zoo. Are these wild pigs?

JDeQ said...

Nope - I've never seen black pigs before. This ia a great shot for this week's theme.

Have a super weekend.

They look wild.

Francisca said...

@Janice(jabblog) and Gary... these are NOT wild pigs. They are "free range" pigs I saw wandering on the unpaved street of a small town in Gansu, China.

I don't think I have, but at the State Fair this summer I saw pink ones with brown spots. Seriously!

Had never seen a family of black pigs/swine prior to casting my eyes on your photo. :)

My sister-in-law's cousin had a black Vietnamese potbellied pig, which I met twice. The second time he was wearing a white bow tie, at an outdoor wedding.

How cute, I have never seen a family of pigs. Usually it is only the adult pigs I see.

I love those little piglets! And yes I have seen a black pig before, a friend owns several on his hobby farm.

Cheers

It's my first look at black pigs. Miss Piggy would prefer green.

JM said...

They look really hairy!

BJ Roan said...

I have seen black pigs, but these are clean and shiny. The ones I saw were wallowing in the mud. Nice composition.

Cute. No, I 've never seen black ones.

lisaschaos said...

I have not - what a pretty family! :)

No - but they're adorable! My husband loves pigs -- he raised then as a 4H project when he was a kid -- I will have to ask him if he's ever heard of black ones. Bet not.

Some people have pigs as pets here :)
