article imageDutch farmer builds water slide for his pigs

By Anne Sewell     Aug 11, 2013 in Odd News
Pigs also need to cool off during the summer heat, so a farmer in the Netherlands came up with a fun way to keep his pigs both cool and also entertained.
Unlike humans, pigs don't have any sweat glands, so they need a cool mud bath to stop them overheating in the hot summer weather. It's necessary for them to roll and wallow around in the mud to keep their core temperature down.
Apparently inspired by a water park, this innovative pig farmer in the Netherlands put together a fun water slide to keep his oinkers cool. Farmer Erik Stegink made use of a disused slide he had bought from a nearby pool on his farmland.
Judging from the photos, they thoroughly appreciate and enjoy it and as the guy says in the video, they even wait patiently for their turn.
Viralnova has some more photos of the pigs and their slide.
