Don’t be fooled by that goof ball grin. The photo doesn’t give perspective or a sense of size. That’s Archimedes, our oldest boar, flashing his permanent grin. Perhaps it is like a crocodile’s smile, plastered on his face. Although in his case, he always has been a bit of a doofus. This is the same 1,000 pound ham that likes to blow bubbles in his whey. Everybody stands back and looks on until he’s done.
So what gives him such an amiable look on his face you ask? The secret is his lips are perpetually turned up by his ever growing tusks. Even eating rocks and digging in the dirt hasn’t worn them down beyond what you see. Fortunately, Archimedes is a gentleman and never gives me trouble. Realize that his nose is about the size of a large bagel – that will give you some perspective as to how wide his grin stretches!
