Whilst on a countryside hike across a farm in Norfolk, on the west coast of the UK, we came across a huge pig pen …
The pigs didn’t seem that use to seeing people as on our approach they dove into a tight huddle and lots of snorting and grunting ensued!! That’s the pigs not us!!
We made a hasty retreat after snapping this photograph and for the rest of our walk wracked our brains as to what a group of pigs are called ?!? So if this is something that keeps you awake at night (?) here is the official answer according to the Oxford Dictionary no less :
A herd or litter of domestic pigs
A farrow of piglets
A sounder of wild pigs
A passel of hogs
We really do learn something new everyday! Useful or not!!
