Racing pigs delight crowd at county fair
The gates opened and they were off, down the nearly 80-foot sawdust track
right into a bowl of ... pig feed.
The All-Alaskan Racing Pigs, a team of eight 3-month-old piglets, delighted
the crowd with their speed, determination and brightly colored racing sheaths at
the Alameda County Fair.
They competed in four races, including
three in which they jumped â€” and subsequently knocked down â€” two 12-inch hurdles
that were actually taller than they are.
Bill and Lee Kelly of
Livermore said they've come to the pig races for four years. "It's something you
don't see every day and they are just so cute" the couple commented.
