Caption wanted!

As happy as ... Pannage Pigs in a paddock they've broken into and made a mess of!

These are pigs that have been released onto the New Forest to eat the bumper crop of acorns to protect the ponies, because acorns are poisonous to ponies.

You and your bacon smile I see the one on the left was halfway in the mud or it belongs to two breeds simultaneously.

As a photo I would say you should have lifted it - meaning a bit less foreground and making sure you include all of the rustic gate at the back. And the missing backside on the right ... I know sometimes one has circumstances that you can't prevent or priorities, but looking at the resolution I think you have cropped this one?

The setting, detail, subject etc is still very nice.
Hey Girl, seeing the happy expression makes me want to have a wallow !

Ha Ha. The pigs are at it again, doing what they do best. I love it! They certainly know how to take a joke, and I guess we could learn from them!

Funny that yearn for ham & pea soup at the Royal Oak is coming back to me Ellie grin that one in the front looks real happy smile
Hi Ellie- my title suggestion would be, Free For All.

On a technical note I would have cropped a little further possibly. My thought would be to crop right down the right side of the gate and eliminate the fourth pig from the pic. I don't mind images running off the page myself. I'd consider cropping a little further on the left side to bring the gate more prominent too as Louis suggested but I don't think you have any foreground to lose.

Just some suggestions...Josie
