Do your KKs have straight or curly tails? I heard a comment on TV that happy pigs have curly tails :?:

pigs tails curl up at times and straighten at others although some breeds of pig have a naturally curled tail.
if you look at a pig when it is running scared( not happy!) its tail will be well curled up,

they will also curl up when piglets are feeding or racing around playing,

When we got our first pigs we were told that they had curly tails when they were NOT happy. Happily ours are mostly straight most of the time?!

My pigs had quite curly tails when they were young, but they are completely straight now at 3 yrs of age.
