One of a kind race at fair & rodeo

An Abilene pig race amused fair visitors.

ABILENE, TX - You usually here the line "and they're off,” at a horse race.

Thursday, it was used a little differently at the West Texas Fair And Rodeo.

Pigs took to the race track.

A crowd watched them race to an Oreo cookie at the end of the track.

The managers of the race say training the young pigs takes about 10 minutes a day and they sleep for 23 hours.

It's been going to the fair over 15 years.

Fair goers seemed to enjoy it.

"They're so little, I mean they'll fit in two hands, right there. They're so cute,” said Tommie Smith.
