Racing Pigs

IMAG1723

I have attended horse races and dog races but never before have I had the privilege of witnessing a pig race….until recently that is.

This annual tradition kicked off some thirteen years ago when it was decided it would be good to combine work with a little bit of light hearted pleasure.

I can see why this has become a very popular event, as many as 5000 spectators attend every year! These beautiful pale pink racing pigs are bright, motivated and very well trained.

They also happen to have  rather fetching names too, I got to see Dolomita , Grappa and a little later a very handsome Ramazotti!
