The New Pigs in Town

This is a mamma pig.  Behind her are lots of adorable, little piglets, but she didn't want you to see them and I wasn't going to insist.  Sorry.  She may not look it in this photo, but Amore estimated her weight at 500 pounds. 

We went to pick out pigs from our regular pig connection, a Sardo who lives in Umbria.  He has very pretty pigs with long eyelashes.  Reportedly, he has done prison time.  But I'm not sure I believe the story because no one has any real details.  Gossip is Italy's national pastime.  Whoops, did I just say that out loud?

Here are the two lucky winners this year who will be well fed and well looked after for many, many months before becoming assorted and very much appreciated cured pork fare.
