Default Oreo lives!

On Saturday I posted a pic of a boar we have been hunting nicknamed Oreo. Our friend across the road called to have us help remove him from a trap. Weighed 269



But low and behold, there are two of them! Here’s the other one at our “dedicated pig feeder”. Almost identical except this one has two white socks on his back legs.

He must have a back problem, seeing as how he is on that inversion table!!!

The second one has a really thick 'white' portion. You could call the first Oreo, and the second 'Double Stuff'.

Looks like one of my daughter's show pigs from when she was in FFA! And I always thought when they ran them out of the show ring and onto the stock trailer they were headed to the processing plant! LOL Shoot, they were headed just down the road to be unloaded at Porky's ranch! Hahaha

Is the white stripe the only reason y'all are saying it has domestic in it?

We are just east and a little south of Moran. It must be a common trait in that area - two other guys on here who hunt around there have PD'd me to say they have an oreo too.

At some point in time, all of the feral hogs down there were domestic from my understanding. Over time, the different species like Hampshire, Yorkshire, Durocs etc. inter-bred and now you have a hodge podge of different colorations.

Or pig community is quite "diverse". Like everywhere they are mostly black but we also a lot of have blonde, reddish, spotted etc. There is one boar we call "Cookies and Cream" that is white with smallish black spots. A few years ago I shot this one we called "Calico"
