Enquiring minds want to know can you spin the fleece???

At first glance, with its woolly coat, onlookers would be forgiven for mistaking this creature for a sheep.
However, a closer look at this rare breed reveals a snout and trotters usually found on pigs.
It’s a confusing sight, but this is one of three curly coated Mangalitza ‘sheep-pigs’ which have been delivered to a UK zoo.

Aprently on re-reading the article the answer is yes you can spin the fleece -wow talk about dual purpose pigs LOL  They use to make sweaters out of fleece from similar type pigs -wonder how soft it is???

Its suppose to be spring

Okay I'm sulking -its darn cold and snowing here........darn it I want spring NOW!!!!!~!
I'm going to go play with wool now -its the only thing from keeping me from going over the edge.  My daughter is currently singing "I'm smarter than the cat" as she wraps Neme in a blanket and carts him around. Jared has his Star Wars lego game on the Wii on full tilt and Daryl is playing with paintball markers much to the terror of Java who is cowering under the desk.
