Split Ends

Tamboar’s Boar Bristles

Pigs have split ends. Massively split ends. This is the norm on the very large pigs. I think I might have figured out an evolutionary function of split ends.

I see this most of all in the winter coats of the pigs. I suspect that the ends create a feathering that can trap heat close to their body and protect them from the chill winds.

So revel in your split ends. They may keep you warm…

    You must not be brushing Tamboar’s hair correctly. Perhaps it is time for Tamboar to visit a fancy upscale hair salon. You might want to switch brands of shampoo and conditioner too! I imagine a few spa days during mud season is all he will get. If not, I have a line of pig hair lotions available at a modest cost.

    I’m glad I found this post! I have a mini pig with split ends and I was concerned it might indicate a vitamin deficiency. Your theory is interesting and makes sense.
