Trotters and more pig sketches …

I do like to understand how things work and as, in the name of cooking research, Chris has been making “Trotter Gear” (see over on Salute the Pig) I was able to make some sketches of a pigs foot.

Pigs really walk on their tip toes and only two of them.There is something unsettling about the two “spare” toes at the back  with their elegant nails. They look rather like thumbs.
