Over the weekend and during the school holidays families can hope that their chosen piglet crosses the line first in the pig races.
Of course, the piglet , like all animal models, has its limitations, including relative developmental maturity at birth.
Stars of the stamps include a pig and piglets , a Border Collie puppy and a duck and a drake.
It's worth a look, if only to spot the adorable striped wild piglets !
For the children a special attraction is the petting zoo allowing them to see and touch foals, piglets , lambs and chicks.
Although generating swine clones appears to pose more technical difficulties than bovine clones, once piglets are born, they appear to be healthy.
Children can handle and feed new born calves, piglets , goats, lambs, chicks and rabbits.
Their pigs forage in fields and woods, their sows only produce two litters of piglets a year and pigs are prepared at the farm butchery, so there's no transport of live animals.
However, many piglets die from having mommy pig accidentally crush them.
Everyone seems to adore the babies, particular our very young piglets and our ducklings.
